Social Evil Statistics. — The annual inspection re- 
port of the Captains of the Metropolitan Police of New 
York city and Brooklyn, gives the number of houses of 
prostitution as 623 ; of houses of assignation, 92 ; and 
of prostitutes, 2,097. This estimate however, must be 
considered as only approximative, on account cf t he 
migratory character of the women to whom it relates, 
and because many of “them reside in tenement houses 
and other dwellings, where their real character is un- 
known, and, it may be, unsuspected. — Sun. 

Child Mubdeb. — The horrible developments published 
the other day respecting a notorious* “ boarding-house ” 
in this city, where mothers, married or unmarried, can 
be delivered of their offspring in the strictest confidence, 
and relieved of all the bothers of maternity, awaken 
serious reflection as to what ought to be done for the 
repression of the terrible social evil of which such estab- 
lishments are at once the outgrowth and the promoters. 
The evil, we are sorry to believe, is on the increase. The 
murder of children, either before or after birth, has be- 
come so frightfully prevalent that physicians, who have 
given careful and intelligent study to the subject, have 
declared that were It not for immigration the white 
population of the United States would actually fall offl 
In a populous quarter of a certain large Western city it 
is asserted, on medical authority, that not a single Anglo- 
American child has been bom alivb for the last three 
years. This is inoredible ; but, making all due allow- 
ance for exaggeration, it is plain enough that the mur- 
der of infinite is a common thing among AmaHrmn 
women. — Tribune. 

less saints. God does not wink, evsn at the 
sin of ignorance. 

We ask our editors who pen those startling 
statistics to give us their views of the remedy. 1 
We believe the cause of all these abuses lies in 
the degradation of woman. 

Strike the chains from your women for as 
long as they are slaves to man’s lust, man will 
be the slave cf bis own passions. 

Wonder not that American women do every- 
thing in their power to avoid maternity; for, 
from false habits of life, dress, food, and gene- 
rations of disease and abominations, it is to 
them a period of sickness, lassitnde, disgust, 
agony and death. 

What man would walk up to the gallows if he 
could avoid it ? And the most hopeless aspect 
of this condition of things is that our Doctors 
of Divinity and medicine teach and believe that 
maternity and suffering are inseparable. 

So long as the Bible, through the ignorance 
of its expounders, makes maternity a curse, and 
women, through ignorance of the science of life 
and health find it so» we need not wonder at the 
multiplication of these fearful statistics. Let 
ns no longer weep, and whine, and pray over 
all these abominations; but with an enlightened 
conscientiousness and religious earnestness, 
bring ourselves into line with God's just, mer- 
ciful and wise laws. Let every thinking man 
make himself to-day a missionary in hispwn 
house. Regulate the diet, dress, exercise, 
health of your wives and daughters. Send they) 
to Mrs. Plumb’s gymnasium, Dio Lewis’s school, 
or Dr. Taylor’s Swedish movement cure, to de- 
velop their muscular system, and to Kuozkowski 
to have the rhubarb, the sulphur, the mercury 
and “ the sins of their fathers ” (Exodus xx. 6.) 
soaked out of their brains. x. o. s. 

Scarce a day passes but some of our daily 
journals take note of the fearful ravages on the 
race, made through the crimes of Infanticide 
and Prostitution. 

For a quarter of a century sober, thinking 
women have warned this nation of tjiese thick 
coming dangers, and pointed to the only remedy, 
the education and enfranchisement of -vxrman ; 
hut men have laughed them to scorn. Let those 
who have made the “strong-minded” women 
of this generation the target for the gibes and 
jeers of a heedless world repent now in sack- 
cloth and ashes, for already they suffer the re- 
tribution of their folly at their own firesides, 
in their sad domestic relations. Wives sick, 
peevish, perverse; children deformed, blind, 
deaf, dumb and insane ; daughters silly and 
wayward ; sons waylaid at every corner of the 
streets and dragged down to the gates of death, 
by those whom God meant to be th^ir 
saviors and support Look at thess things no 
longer as necessary afflictions, sent to wean ns 
from earth as visitations from Providence-; bat 
as the direct results of the violation of immuta- 
ble laws, whioh it was our duty to study and 
obey. In tha midst of all these miseries, let us 
regard ourselves as guilty sinners and not help- 


A correspondent writes thus to the N. Y. 
Sun : 

Id answer to an advertisement for buttonhole workers 
on linen work in your paper a few days ago, mj^wife 
applied to a large establishment in Prinoe street, a few 
doors from Broadway, when she was told she could have 
plenty to do at the price of five cents a dozen, 

and she find her thread. She thought the sum very 
small ; bat, as I was not doing much myself, she took 
eight dozen. Now, sir she is* very quick hand, and 
executes a good buttonhole in every six minutes— eight 
dozen in ten hoars. When die took -them home she 
stated to her employer that it was an utter impossibility 
to make them at such a figure. Upon which he laughed, 
saying he could get them made even cheaper ; also, she 
most be a very slow worker. She told him that she 
thought she could get better prices, when he sarcasti- 
cally replied: “You had better go there and get 
them ! ” 

Here is the reason of the terrible crimes of 
Prostitution and Infanticide. Morality and re- 
ligion have more to do with a well lined stomach 
than we dream of. No doubt, if we should talk 
with this employer of the importance of giving 
women votes, he would reply, can you not trust 
rnim to legislate for you? u he not the natural 
protector of woman ? Working women, throw 

your needles to the winds; press yourselves into 
employments where you can get better pay ; 
dress yourselves in costume, like daughters of 
the regijnent, and be conductors in our oars and 
railroads, drive hacks. If .your petticoats stand 
in the way of bread, virtue and freedom, cut 
them off “ There was a time,” says Carlyle, “ in 
the history of the race when man was primary, 
and his rays secondary ; hut' to-day rays take 
precedence of the man.” Woman’s dress keeps 
her out of a multitude of employments where 
she could make good wages. We heard of , a 
family of daughters out West who, being lcjft 
suddenly to depend on themselves decided to 
ignore all woman’s work at low wages, so they 
donned male attire. One went to work in a lum- 
ber yard, one on a steamboat, one droVe a hack 
in a Western city, and in a few years with 
economy they laid up enough to buy a hand- 
some farm where they now live in comfort as 

Mrs. Bickerdyke, who followed Sherman 
through his entire campaign, taking care of sick 
soldiers, has built a large hotel at Salma, Kan- 
sas, which she intends to manage entirely her- 
self If women are to have a place in this world 
they must get right out of the old grooves and 
do new and grand things. We -have looked 
through the eye of a needle long enough. It is 
time for “ The Revolution.” — _ 


In Ceylon the marriage proposal ta brought about by 
the wm first sending to her whom he wishes to become 
his wife, to purchase her olothee. These she. sells for a 
stipulated sum, generally asking as much as she thinks 
requisite for them to begin the world with. In the even- 
ing he calls cm her with the wardrobe, at her father’s 
house, and they pass the night in each other’s company. 
Next morning, if mutually satisfied, they appoint the 
day of marriage. They are permitted to separate 
whenever they please, and so frequently avail themselves 
of this privilege, but they sometimes change a dozen 
times before their inclinations are suited .— Jritk People. 


Time was when two persons before marriage tried to 
find out if they were sympathetic and congenial to each 
other. The disposition is out of fhahion now, 'and a 
new, if not better, order of things is established. A11 
that is needful at present is for the intended bride to 
ascertain if she has clothes enough ; all the rest follows 
as a matter of course. The moment her connubial 
election is made, she seta about buying or making gar- 
ments, never sparing time to inquire into the state of 
her affeotions. Hie domestic -picture of the future is a 
matter of indifference, provided the frame be gilded. It 
is of no consequence if her love wear oat, so her rai- 
ment, exoterte and esoteric, does not - It it last, *11 the 
happiness she desires is secure. What are the sicknesses 
and disappointmenta of the heart to the agony of get- 
ting ready for file hymeneal altar? "I should have 
been wedded long ago,” said a disconsolate beauty the 
other day, “if I could have got my wardrobe reedy.” 
In view of the existing condition of affairs, we think the 
idea oommendable that a young man who wishes to lay 
the foundation of a future, should marry a fashionable 
wile, and sell her clothes. — Sun. 

Talking with a young lady a few day i since,* 
she saidshe frilly agreed with onr ideas ; hut ehe 
could not admit it before gentlemen, because, 
they made such fan of “strong-minded. w<k 


men.” 44 Why, my dear girl,” wf, replied* 44 they 
make twenty shots at the weak-minded 
where they make one at us.” So we turned to a 
dozen journals and read her a series of squibs 
like the above, showing that women are just as 
degraded to-day in spirit if not degree in these 
customs and estimates of themselves, as in the 
past ; and that men really take very much the 
same view of marriage as their barbarian an- 
cestors. The best preparation for marriage is 
to bring the mind and body into a healthy con- 
dition, the clothes are of little consequence. 
Whenever a sick, feeble woman marries, she 
commits a fraud not only on her husband but 
the State. The wedding presents and trousseau 
are really two of the most disgusting features of 
onr refined civilization.

Francis Train, and the editors respectively say many 
things, ind say them with ability and good nature. Suf- 
frage, irrespective of sex, is the primary plank of “ The 
Revolution,” and its success will be marked in propor- 
tion to the extent this idea is or may be popularized 
among the people. Kansas has just given 9,070 in favor of 
female suffrage, and negro suffrage advanced tais num- 
ber by 436 votes, out of a total vote of 30,000 ; more, 
probably, than any other State, would give, so we are not 
forcibly struck that our better halves will undertake for 
some lime to vote us out, and get better men in our 
places. . * ' . 

In regard to 44 quack advertisements ” we 
make no exceptions, and so afraid are we of old 
dragged ideas tbat we have placed Mr. Piilsbury 
under the care of Kaczkowski to have his allo- 
pathic part all washed out of him ; and when 
his cold water thunder begins to reverberate 
throhgh this land, you will find there is a Revo- 
lution in truth everywhere, in state, church, 
home and the editorial chair.

“ The Revolution ” is the new paper and sensation. 
It advocates Woman Suffrage and general reform, and 
goes into the financial question pretty thoroughly. The 
names behind this new sheet— which, by the way, is one 
of remarkable neatness — are Anthony, Stanton, and 
Train ; and whatever George Francis has anything to do 
with, is certain to have life and snap in it. For wide- 
awake reading, on topics within its chosen sphere, “ The 
Revolution” is a model. Subscriptions received at

We are complimented by a copy of Susan B. An- 
thony’s new paper, “ The Revolution.” Its a neatly 
printed sixteen page paper, and Is edited by our friend E 
Cady Stanton and Parker Piilsbury. It is devoted to all 
kinds of reform and Woman Suffrage. ** The Revolu- 
tion ” is no doubt destined to wield a mighty influence 
in the arena it has chosen. Backed up by George Fran- 
cis Train with his thirty millions of private wealth, the 
Credit Foncier of America, Credit Mobilier, half of Wall 
street, with Train for its financier and advocate, it can- 
not help but be a money-making institution. 

We notice a long article devoted to the discussion of 
several topics, written in the ferae, pointed and telling 
style that no one but George Francis Train commands.

“ The Revolution.”— W e welcome with much pleas- 
ure the appearance of the first number of this new jour- 
nal of reform. It is a neatly-printed, sixteen-page paper, 
published by Susan B. Anthony, at 3? Park Row, New 
York, and edited by Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Parker 
Piilsbury. It announces that it wfll advocate educated 
suffrage, irrespective of sex or color, equal pay to 
women for equal work, eight hours’ labor, and various 
social and religious reforms. Its articles are able, radi- 
cal, timely, varied and interesting, striking telling blows 
upon old error and wrong, mainly in unison with oug_ 
own' humble sheet. Its appearance is an encouraging 
sign of the times. 

From the Machias (Me.) Republican. 

We have received the first number of a new paper 
called “ The Revolution,” published in New York by 
Susan B. Anthony, with Elizabeth Cady Stanton and 
Parker Piilsbury as editors. It is a folio of sixteen pages 
and handsomely gotten up. It is essentially a woman’s 
rights affair ; advocates the eight hour-system, and the 
abolition of standing armies, etc., etc., etc. George 
Francis Train seems to be the principal character in its 
make-up, as his name appears more or less in nearly 
every page. Altogether it is a sprightly and interesting 
paper, and contains considerable important statistical 
information. Terms $2.00 a year. Address Susan B.

but every subscriber will get his or her money’s worth.

brains, and as they never do anything by halves, when 
“ The Revolution”- gets fairly under way we may ex- 
pect it to be the liveliest paper published in Uncle Sam’s 
broad dominions. It is to represent no party, sector

sible for his or her opinions. We shall now have an op- 
portunity of witnesting the success or failure of this 
attempt, by the advocates of Woman’s Rights, tooonduct 
an organ in their own way. That it will have a large 
subscription list, we cannot doubt, for with the perse- 
verance and pertinacity of Miss Anthony will be ooupled 
tbe individual efforts of thousands of believers in the 
extreme of every ism, who will hope to have a hearing 
through its columns, and will, therefore, labor earnestly

We would call attention to “ The Revolution,” a new 
paper, whose publication commenced on the 8th inst 
in New York. Is is designed as the organ of the na- 
tional party of New America, and bears for its motto : 
Principle, not Policy— Justice, not Favors. Besides the 
special political questions of Educated Suffrage, Irre- 
spective of Sex or Color ; Equal Pay to Women for 
Equal Work ; Eight Honrs’ Labor ; Abolition of Stand- 
ing Armies and Party Despotisms, which it will advo- 
cate, it proposes to discuss all topics of Labor, Finance, 
and Social life, in a comprehensive and independent 

We are most agreeably disappointed in the size and ap- 
pearance of thi« paper, containing as it does 16 pages, all 
neatly printed, out and stitched. . 

We have read its articles with the liveliest interest, 
among which are Kansas ; The First Woman's Vote ; 
Revolution ; The Press, Retrospective and Prospective, 
while it promises a series of articles, beginning this 
week, to prove the power of the ballot in elevating the 
character and oondition of woman. 

This paper appears in answer to a great want in jour- 
nalistic literature, hardly one being ready to upeZk for 
the cause of woman without a sneer, and not one being 
unfettered enough by party and existing organizations 
to discuss social and political questions in the best light 
of the acknowledged principles of morality end justice 
To all who recognize the oorrupt character of our poll 
tics and politicians, and the corresponding want of a 
better condition of society, we commend the perusal of 
"The Revolution,” and we bespeak for it a large cir- 
culation among all the friends of true reform every-

“ The Revolution.”— We have reoeivedthe first num- 
' ber of this handsome and spirited journal, published by 
Susan B. Anthony, and edited by Elizabeth Cady Stan- 
ton and Parker Piilsbury. 

“The Revolution” is published in the interest of - 
Universal Liberty— liberty not confined by geographical 
lines, nor painted some pecular hue, but tor Ml men — 
and women. Its chief aim will be -the enfranchisement 
(for she is a slave) and elevation of woman. 

A part of the prospectus says : America no longer 
to be led b.\ Europe.” “American products and labor 
free.” “ Foreign manufactures prohibited "Open 
doors to artisans and emigrants.” We need not wish 
this journal snocess, as "Revolutions” never go back- 

The press on all sides is becoming so very 
complimentary, that we feel more like hiding 
our faces behind our fans than commenting on . 
their praises of us. So we make a low bow to 
all these pleasant and appreciative editors, 
and beg them, in whatever they write hereafter 
on this question of Woman’s Bights, to be 
spicy, common-sense and argumentative ; for, as 
we are expeoted to answer all that is said on 
thin subject, we should like to have some meat 
on the bone given us to pick. The World takes

merits, I enolose a tabular and conveniently* 
arranged statement of same. As to the vote of 
this county, and the exact influence of George 
Francis Train in reference to it, it is somewhat 
difficult to give even a guess. Still, so far aa 
my own observation goes, I do not believe more 
than one-third of the votes cast for female suf- 
frage in Leavenworth county would have been 
cast for it, had not Train come here. The Fe- 
nians were not the only voters influenced by 
Train. I know of Republicans and Democrats, 
prominent and solid men, who went to the polls 
and voted for Woman Suffrage, who, up to the 
time of Train’s first speech, and some, up to 
the time of the second, not only “ scouted ” the 
measure, but actively opposed it I am not 
saying these things for the purpose of flattering 
Train, or in any wise influencing your convic- 
tions in reference to him. I am satisfied he put 
new life into the measure here, influenced many 
it was impossible for either yourself Mrs. Stan- 
ton, Miss Brown, or any other advocate of 
Woman Suffrage to influence, and, by creating a 
large degree of enthusiasm in behalf of the 
question, made hitherto lukewarm friends ac- 
tive workers— and in this way, through all the 
agencies, trebled the vote in the county. 

Am glad to hear that your paper is soon to be 
issued, and think you have selected an exceed- 
ingly suggestive name. Will be most happy to 
place “ The Revolution ” on our exchange list. 

Am glad, also, to hear that your trip was a 
success, and of suoh a character as to attract 
attention. Cannot but think, however, that the 
action of Lucy Stone and others was dictated 
by narrow rather than liberal ideas. Still, I 
have no doubt you win consider Mrs. Stone’s 
manifesto as philosophically as you have many 
other things heretofore. 

Trusting that you may be successful in your 
new enterprise, and that you may yet have the 
utmost wish in reference to Woman Suffrage 
folly realized, I remain, 

Most respectfully, yours.

From Michigan the following comes, and is 
one of a class occasionally received : 

I had seen several notices of your new journal ip the

but waited to get particulars in the Anti-Slavery Standard. 

When you commence, if you have not already, please 
make me a subscriber, and if you will send pie an extra

But 1 can assure you beforehand, the prospect in this re- 
gion for reform or reform journals is dark indeed. 

It is certainly a most pitiful consideration 
that the only paper in the nation that demands 
Reconstruction on the basia-^of Impartial Suf- 
frage and citizenship, cannot be davertised in 
the Standard tor love of the cause nor yet for 
money. But so it is ; and if the Standard can 
stand the reproach, undoubtedly “The Revo-

“ The Revolution ” came to hand to-day. 
Please find enclosed two dollars for one year’s 
subscription. I like the paper, and believe that 
two such persons for editors cannot tail to make 
a valuable journal. Yon have been kind enough 
to invite friendly criticism upon anything I may 
see in it I will therefore take the liberty to 
criticise your article upon “ Kansas,” and the 
reports of the speeches of Miss Anthony and 
Mr. Train, as they were made through the 
country. A Revolution, and especially a moral 
Revolution, should have truth for its corner- 
stone. Clap-trap, “ noise and confosion, ” may be 
very good weapons in political st.ife, but not in 
a movement like Woman’s Suffrage. This cause 
will triumph on its own merits or not at aU, and 
exaot truthfulness and justice to all parties will 
be found in the end to be the best policy. Yon 
say onr vote might have been “ comparatively a 
small one, had not Mr. Train galvanized the 
Democrats into life.” When yon say that Doug- 
las county gave the largest vote against Wo- 
man Suffrage, you are mistaken, whether yon 
mean relatively or absolutely. If yon mean the 
largest per cent of the vote cast, it stands high- 
er than any of the stronger Democratic counties 
except Leavenworth and Bourbon. If yon mean 
in the aggregate, then Leavenworth cast more 
votes against Woman’s rights than Douglas. 
Also Leavenworth county did not give the largest 
per cent, for the question of any county, as you 
will see by the figures published in “ The Revo- 
lution.” The per cent of Leavenworth is 89, 
and of Chase 94. Compare some of the Re- 
publican counties with the more Democratic, 
and yon will find the per cent in favor of 
the Republicans. For instance, Douglas 44, 
Shawnee 60, Wabunnse 75, Chase 94, Riley 57, 

fglbt ’ fUreltttidtt. 

Coffee 83, Anderson 70, Allen 80 among the Re- 
publicans ; and Atchison 27, Wyandotte 21, 
Doniphan 25, Marshal 38, Johnson 37, Mi a mi 
25, Morris 29, Jefferson 28, Bourbon 63, Leav- 
enworth 89 of the more Democratic counties. 

The large vote in Leavenworth was due to the 
fact that a few of the leading Democrats who 
had the management of thb party, had none 
but tickets in favor of Woman Suffrage printed 
and distributed in the county. Such, I am in- 
formed by the parties themselves, was the case, 
and that Mr. Train had bnt little if anything to 
do with it. From Oluthe he telegraphed or 
wrote : “ Tremendous house — strongly Demo- 
cratic — nearly all for Woman Suffrage. They 
see that by voting Woman’s Suffrage they beat 
the Republicans at their own game. Yon can 
bet your bottom dollar on Johnson county for 
the women.” The returns show 325 for and 
866 against, or 37 per cent 

From Miami county he writes the Democrats 
are goipg solid for Woman Suffrage. The re- 
turns show 25 per cent 

From Franklin county he writes : “ Suffice to 
say that I carried the vote as unanimously as at 
Leavenworth, Lawrence, Olathe, and Paola, for 
Woman Suffrage. We are sure to carry Kal- 
lock’s town against him.” Yet Woman’s Suf- 
frage received 16 per cent of the vote in the 

It is clear, from Mr. Train’s dispatches, that 
he made Woman’s Suffrage a party issue and 
urged the Democrats to vote for it as such. 
Now, however* ignorant the Republicans 5T 
Kansas may be, they can readily see that, if a 
large vote for Woman’s Suffrage is a Democratic 
victory and Republican defeat a small vote 
would be a Democratic defeat and Republican 
victory ; and, as there are two Republicans to 
one Democrat in Kansas, where such arguments 
would gain one Democrat they would lose two 
Republicans. While Mr. Train and Miss An- 
thony doubtless think they did the cause great 
service by the course they pursued, I think a very 
large majority of the true friends of the cause 
in Kansas think their policy most unwise and 
injurious. . Say what you will about the apathy 
of ’Republicans, there are ten in favor of Wo- 
man’s Suffrage in Kansas to one Democrat, in my 
opinion, and I have no sympathy with the whole- 
sale denunciation of them, which I see in the 
speeches and writings of some people. Neither 
do I sympathize with the opprobrium attempted 
to be cast upon such men as Beecher, Phillips, 
Garrison and others whose speeches and labors 
have done so much for the cause. For myself 
I believe that the little finger of either of these 
men has more weight in the country than as 
many Trains as could be piled up on the 5,000 
lots at Omaha or the capital addition to Colum- 

Now, in conclusion, I do not think the friends 
of Woman’s Suffrage can afford to quarrel or 
misrepresent anybody or anything, and have 
written this merely to give the view some of ns 
take of the cause in Kansas, who don’t see with 
the eyes of Mr. Train, Miss Anthony, and per- 
haps yourself. Both views being presented, we 
can afford to rest satisfied and go earnestly to 
work for the future. We in KananH intend to 
keep the fires burning, and hope yet to “ lead 
the world ” in the good cause. 

Very truly, C. Robinson. 

Leavenworth, Dec. 22, 1867. 
Miss S. B. Anthony : Your letter, written 
from New York, was handed me yesterday. As 
you asked for the official vote on the amend- 



Editors of the Revolution : 

New Yobk, January 1868. 

So far as any interest in either of the political 
parties is concerned, I care not whether the 
Woman’s Suffrage vote in Kansas was east by 
Republicans or Democrats. What I do care to 
know is, whether that vote and the negro suf- 
frage vote were votes for principle. It certainly 
was not a vote for principle, except so far as 
those who voted for one voted for the other. It 
is presumable that the negro suffrage vote was 
cast almost wholly by Republicans. Now, if a 
large share of these same men, independent, 
and in spite of party dictation, voted for Woman 
Suffrage also, that fact^is encouraging, hopeful, 
in the highest degree. On the other hand, if 
Republicans only sustained their own party 
measure, and Democrats, tinder the influence of 
a magnetic mind, and perhaps in part to spite ^ 
the Republicans, voted simpfy to give the ballot v 
to woman (bnt not to accept and apply a prin- 
ciple), the fact, though encouraging in its way, 
is comparatively insignificant and worthless. 

That the Woman’s Suffrage vote was made 
up, to a considerable extent, from both parties, 
is doubtless true ; but, by a carelul comparison 
of the vote on the two .questions, oounty by 
county, I cannot discover any positive indication 
(except in the case of Leavenworth county) that 
any considerable number of Democrats voted 


for Woman Suffrage, and even half the vote in 
this county might have been given by Repub- 
licans, ns the vote on negro suffrage shows. The 
largest vote against Woman Suffrage was given 
by this very county, and not by the Republican 
county of Douglas, an has been stated. Next 
to ^Leavenworth (which seems to be an excep- 
tion to all the other counties') Douglas oounty 
gave the largest vote for Woman Suffrage. 

By far the largest proportionate vote against 
woman suffrage was given by the strong Demo- 
cratic counties of Atchison, Doniphan and Jef- 
ferson, each voting overwhelmingly against 
both negro and Woman Suffrage. Indeed, in 
nearly all the counties the vote does not vary 
very greatly, indicating that to a great extent 
the votes for each proposition, were given by the 
same men. 

Let us hope that the inference I have drawn 
is the true one. Five or seven thousand 
vote 3 in Kansas, oast independent of party, in 
favor of justice and principle, are worth far 
more than twenty thousand cast in favor of ex- 
tending a certain privilege to a certain class. 
Neither woman nor the negro needs privileges, to 
be enjoyed while others are denied them. What 
all need is the establishment of justice and 
right F. Babby. 


The following is a letter of the experience of 
one of our young ladies canvassing for “The 
Revolution : ” 

New York, January 31st, 1868. 

My Deai£ Friend : You are already informed 
of my arrival in this city of good and evil, hon- 
est dealing and lotteries, fashion and famine ; 
but you are not aware what I’ve been about since 
I located in this spot and I propose to tell you 
instanter. You see, my dear, after settling my- 
self in my quiet home,' I was at a loss to know 
just how to next proceed, and while earnestly 
cogitating the subject I accidentally came 
across the first number of the new paper called 
■“The Revolution,” and no sooner had I dis- 
covered by whom it was edited than I decided 
I would make the acquaintance and ask the ad- 
vice of said notables. I repaired to the den of 
supposed wild beasts ; when, lo and 'behold ! I 
find not twin female ogresses, but live natural 
women, just like you, me, or any one else, save 
perhaps their hearts are braver and their heads 
stronger and clearer than the majority of those 
on the earth with them. After some conversa- 
tion with them, I issued from their office pre- 
pared to work for their cause, your cause, my 
cause, the cause of all women ; and how I went 
for subscribers I now proceed to relate. 

My first attempt was in a place wholly un- 
known to me, and the work being also new, I 
could not guess my reception at the house where 
I first entered ; but when the lady came into 
the parlor, and pleasantly sat down by me, I was 
not greatly disturbed as you may imagine. I 
immediately introduced the cause of my call, 
and in reply to my remarks she said : “Do you 
think that these women can carry on the work ? 
Do you think that they con affect other women ? 

I’ve little faith in the sex. They are de- 
ceitful and vain, and I don’t think they can be 
made anything else. Why,” said she, “you 
can’t have a servant or seamstress come into 
your house without their winking and blinking 
at your husband, so that you are compelled to 
turn her out, or see him led into temptation.” 

I laughed outright, and said : “Why, my good 

woman, supposing your husband was to have a 
handsome coachman come into his employ, And 
he should ‘wink and blink’ at you j doyouimag- 
ine you would be seriously tempted ? *’ “ Me ? 
me? no, indeed! I’d hang myself sooner.” 

“ So should your husband, madam : and we 
women must work until the equality of such, as 
of all other matters, is established.” We wan- 
dered into a nice long talk, and when I left her 
she bid me God speed. On I tramped through 
snow and slosh, from house to house, until I 
was ushered into one where sat a good-looking 
bilious female, lazily sewing. To her I stated 
the reason of my honoring her with my presence, 
which was hardly done when she turned her 
stony, black eyes upon me with — “ No, I don’t 
want the paper. Dear knows, the working class 
are troublesome enough without their heads be- 
ing filled with such stuff. I’m most plagued to 
death now with my servants,” and she groaned 

I left the disconsolate daughter of Eve to her 
sewing and servants, menially deciding that, on 
the arrival of her husband to dinner, he would 
be regaled with a “ tale of woe” that might well 
cause the stoutest heart to quail. Another se- 
ries of wading and bell-ringing, and I entered a 
parlor that would have proved entertaining for 
sometime had not the lady possessor of all this 
luxury heTself appeared. The stately folding 
of the arms, the measured walk to the window, 
where she turned and eyed me, all pronounced 
her a strong, superior woman, smothered by 
circumstances, but a strong though latent char- 
acter. I inquired if she had heard of “The 
Revolution.” “No.” Then she wasn’t aware" 
it was edited and published by Susan B. An- 
thony and Mrs. E. Cady Stanton? “Mercy, 
no ! ” and didn’t waut to. She had heard 
enough of those women to disgust her. I then 
asked had she ever seen those ladies, and upon 
her replying negatively, recounted my acquaint- 
ance with them, remarking that as yet they had 
neither eaten me, nor taught me to swear. She 
became quite interested, and gave me the names 
of some friends upon whom she asked me to 
call. I left her, perfectly convinced that in 
years to oome, if not just now, her influence 
would be for the cause of her sex, 

At the next door the lady would not see me 
because I sent no card. I excused her and left 
What was the use Of parley, she probably 
would’nt have been able to read the paper if I’d 
bestowed one. More bell-ringing, step-chmb- 
ing, and servant-snubbing, and in her papa's 
parlor I met a stylishly dressed girl of sixteen, 
who received me politely, saying her mamma was 
sick and she would attend to the business in 
questioh, which I made known to her, with the 
following result: “ Do you think it’s a nice pa- 
per ? ” Upon my assuring her I did, she lisped 
forth, “Why, la! do you? I dare say it is ; but 
there’s so many nice papers. Don’t you think 
so ? Now there’s the Evening Mail” I wanted 
to say, yes, and Mother Goose’s Melodies ; 
but refrained, and walked to the next house, 
estimating that she had probably not less than 
twenty gentlemen admirers, as she was such a 
dear little Creature, and not the least strong- 
minded. Up^he steps and into somebody’s ele- 
gant hall I stood, the servant not deigning to 
invite me into the reception room, A voice from 
above asks “who is it?” and an elaborately 
dressed head, put over the banisters, replies, 
“ She looks like a beggar, ma. ” Soon Ma Shod- 
dy appeared, radiant in a gay morfiing robe and 
pink cap ribbons. She cast upon me a most 
pitiful glance, and when I had dosed my ad- 

dress, waved her hand majestically, and said : 
“Land sakes! we don’t want papers, we’re in 
that sort of business, and my husband, he can 
get all the papers he wants, for nothing.” I 
bowed humbly to Dame Shoddy, and with drab- 
bled dress and tired feet wandered home, won- 
dering how long 'ere the scales would fall from 
women’s eyes, and their whole souls be filled 
with light. New you will make answer to this 
account with the old thread-bare, “I told you 
so ; women are not comp 3 tent to enter the public 
lists with their brothers, or stand on equality 
with them.” I don’t want to hear anything of 
the sort I have shown you the six of our sex ; 
and not a rod off I can find the half dozen from 
the opposite. These women ar£not incapable, — 
simply untaught, utterly lacking the strong ed- 
ucation and development they need and, will 
in time demand and obtain. Brought up from 
babyhood to allow men to think for them, it has 
never yet dawned upon them that they can and 
should think and act for themselves. The 
time is not far distant, however, when the rub- 
bish of years will be removed, and the whole 
female world will take and maintain their 
rights, and rightful positions. By and bjr I 
hope to tell you more of those Imeet, and what 
they say. Until then adieu. 



Sexology, as the Philosophy of Life; Implying Social 

Organisation and Government By Mrs. Elizabeth 

Osgood Goodrich Willard Chicago: J. B. Walsh. 

We are glad that an American woman of such deep 
and pore insight has taken her place among those pio- 
neers of reform— tree philosophers. This book is dedi- 
cated to sD who love justice, and truth, and humanity. 

Bold, original, and comprehensive in thought, it is not 
a work to be lightly read or carelessly considered. As 
stated by the author, its main idea is the universal pre- 
valence of the law of sexual order. As sex runs through 
all forms of li/e, and as life depends upon motion, the 
laws of sex must necessarily belong to the laws of mo* 
tion, underlying all the powers and forces, all the evo- 
lutions and revolutions of the universe. In the re- 
generation of humanity, theory and practice most 
work together as the male and female laws always do 
in its generation. Our religious theories have made God 
a masculine autocrat, and our practice has corresponded 
thereto. In the exercise of “dominion over woman'* 
man has preached and practiced Moses instead of Jesus. 
This theory and. assumption of masculine superiority 
and supremacy over woman has been long and fearful in 
its effects— witness debauched men, degraded female 
outcasts, and the legalized prostitution of married life — 
Woman has never understood herself or her oontrolliDg 
or restraining power. 

From the law and testimony of nature we find that 
the whole universe is seeking, and that the planetary 
spheres have found an equalibration of motion. This 
path of equilibrium between the sexes must be the 
zodiac of justice, harmony, and highest truth in fll hu- 
man theory and practice. In a relative sense Soul is the 
Mother and Law the Father of Nature, the elements of 
which are organized into suns and worlds and every 
form of life by the Law of Motion. The fundamental 
laws of organization in the solar system are : L Aggre- 
gation, Rotation, and Gravitation, a grand concentrated 
action of feminine laws, producing condensation and 
unity, as in the primitive solar body. 2. Centrifugation, 
Evolution, and Segregation are a grand reaction of mas- 
culine laws producing division and individuality as 
among the planets. Rotation, feminine, and Centrifu- 
gation, masculine, are the two most distinct laws of sex. 

The laws of motion are resolvable inlo three methods. 
1. Molecular, or primal, 2. Curvilinear, produced by the 
aggregation and rotation of the elements of matter. 3. 
Rectilinear, as in gravitation or its centrifugal reaction. 
From the primal condition of the elements, as an infin- 
ite sea of molecular motion, the author traces the birth 
and growth of suns and worlds, by these laws and 
methods of motion. She also treats, incidentally, of 
magnetism, of the Glacial Period, and other mysterious 
phenomena of nature. She believes in thegreat “ over- 
soul” flowing and circulating as spirit through nerves — 


tfte lUvtfttttitftt. 

that life 1 b an Incarnation of soul, bodily motion being 
a transfer of molecular motion which by right conditions 
is brought under conscious and voluntary control. She 
traces the laws of sex in organic life, stating that from 
the solar system to the lowest forms of vegetable and 
■nimal life, all generate by the law of division of labor. 
The fundamental laws of vegetable and animal organiza- 
tion, of h uman organization and development, are con- 
sidered— from which the conclusion is deduced that the 
assumption of masculine superiority, supremacy, and 
mastership in the sexual law and parental office is ex- 
tremely inappropriate from the lips of philosophers who 
read the great laws of nature. The author thinks that 
the organisation of humanity is woman’s work in the 
world; to do this properly she should have better con- 
ditions than at present, the first step towards this end 
being to give her an independent home. Throughout 
the whole domain of nature there is a constant action 
and reaction of the central and centrifugal, or mascu- 
line and feminine laws. Every member of the solar sys- 
tem has its masculine and feminine action as well as its* 
masculine and feminine position. In its rotary motion 
and power of attraction the sun is feminine— in its dis- 
tributee action, throwing off light and heat, it is mas- 
culine. All things in nature have a corresponding action 
and reaction upon these two principles of motion . The 
laws of soul, spirit and mind must correspond with those 
of matter, else they could not harmonize txfd work to- 
gether in the organization of life. Just so frure as that 
“ action and reaction are equal,” just so sure is it that 
man and woman ape equal in power, though it runs in 
different channels in each; it would be contrary to the 
established laws of Nature if it were not so. The natural 
l^ws of sex, as we read their action, position, and rela- 
tion toward each other in the solar add hum«n systems, 
teach us the true relations, positions, and labor of man 
and woman in the family, in society, and in the govern- 
mental orders. As the feminine law is everywhere the 
controlling power, this power must be recognized in wo- 
man and its law obeyed, before we can ever have order 
or harmony in any of the relations of life. In human 
society, as it is now organized, there is no balance of 
power between man and woman, and of course there is no 
harmony. Man, by his power of control with the sword 
and in the field of external labor, has usurped all the 
natural rights of the mother. He lias deeded to himself 
her person, her children, her personal property and 
earnings, as well as the earth beneath her feet. These 
mighty usurpations he maintains by the power of the 
purse, that is, by the power of bread and butter, fuel 
and clothing, home and position in society, and, through 
the ballot-box, by the strong arm of civil (?) law. Just 
as if woman were a beggar on the earth, and had no 
natural right even to a shelter from the hands of a race 
of beings to whom she as a sex, has given life and birth 
and maternal care 1 in consequenoe of the dashing in- 
terests of capital and . labor, marriage is becoming im- 
possible to any but the rich, and woman is becoming 
homeless ; woman is losing even the prospect of the home 
which she often obtains by the legalized sale of herself 
How remedy the evil? Our government has started on 
the right track; its people own, or profess to own and 
control the government ; that is, they own and control, 
or profess to own and control themselves through their 
government. They must also own and be able to control 
their capital through the same channels. Our government, 
by instruction from the people, must adopt suoh meas- 
ures as the people shall demand for their good, and in so 
doing they have a right to control the wealth of the na- 
tion. The people most demand that every dollar of cap- 
ital in the State shall be taxed to provide a home for 
every woman of mature age, which shall also be a home 
for the man who [is, or shall be, her husband, and for 
every married woman or widow with children. Such 
homes must be under the general supervision of the 
State government or the people’s agents, and herein 
would arise an absolute necessity that woman.should 
vote; she must have a voice in the general tupervision 
of her own home, besides being its individual mistress 
and manager. 

We think this is but a question of expediency. At 
this hour, woman oaks for the ballot as the key of equal- 
ity. She demands her right to stand side by side with 
man in the avocation of life; and receive " equal pay for 
equal work.” Give her these, and she can then earn and 
own her home. 

Every governmental order, whether general, state, or 
town, should have its feminine as well as its masculine 
head corresponding to the family. The feminine head 
should be central, directive, digestive, controlling; the 
m as c uline, external, distributive, executive, and puni- 
tive. Woman is just as necessary to the head of the 
governmental orders, as the i eminine law of reason is to 
the head of the human system, or rotation to the solkr. 

Our government lacks its feminine brain, its cerebellum. 
Its unitizing power; it lacks its oerebral, feminine law of 
intuitive judgment, wisdom, and firmness; it lacks its 
feminine conscience its moral control ; it lacks its 
feminine centres of sustaining power, its bouI, stomach, 
and heart, from which each member should receive its 
home for woman and the family, and its capital for man 
in the hands of suitable managers. Men judge women 
too much by their own law of action. The laws of our 
mental constitution are as unlike as our physical. Woman 
is to man what the left side of the human organization is 
to the right Man fights; woman endures. Man displays 
his force of will; woman exercises firmness. Men under- 
stand very well that there is no such thing as maintain- 
ing personal freedom without the ballot-box, without a 
voice in the laws that govern ns. Woman cannot ex- 
ercise her law of self-control, or the control of society, 
through male agents. Each sex must exercise its own 
law, as well in the mental as in the generative sphere. 

In the last two chapters of this work, devoted to a dis - 
cufsion of human origin and destiny, we find the Bame 
fidelity to the author’s conceptions of truth. Simply and 
earnestly she interprets the teachings of nature. May 
this generation be wise enough to put some of her 
theories into practice. o. h. 

Just Discrimination. —The Cold Wnier (Mich. ) 
Sentinel, in a sensible argument on the new Con- 
stitution to submitted to the people of that 
State, says of' the article on the Election Fran- 
chise : It differs very materially from the old 
as amended. The voters in the first class are 
“ every male citizen of the United States,” — 
leaving out the word white and leaving in the 
word “ male,” thereby providing that negroes 
may vote, but women may not It was the 
work of a coward to put that clause in such a 
shape that it could not be voted npon separately^. 
We are, as we have repeatedly declared, in favor 
of the negro voting, so long as he must assist in 
the fighting and pays taxes ; but at the same 
time we shall oppose any attempt to thrust the 
thing down the throats of the people in this 
“ omnibus ” fashion. * • * * 

This provision denies the ballot to the “bet- 
ter half” of the community. The negro may 
vote, but the woman who knows enough to train 
up a family of boys until old enough to be elect- 
ors, and finally teach them how to vote, cannot. 
The negro knows enough to vote, but your wife, 
your sister, or your mother does not. We would 
not insinuate that the gentlemen composing the 
Convention did not respect the ladies — not at 
all. Not that they loved the ladies less, bat the 
negro more. Turn that provision of the “ Elec- 
tive Franchise ” as you will, and it is wrong and 
ought to defeat any Cohstitntion containing it. 

The Convention had both propositions before 
them, but adopted the one giving the ballot to 
the negro, and rejected the one extending it to 
the women ; and it is this vote of censure and 
of degradation npon that class, the people are 
now called npon to sustain. They are asked to 
declare by their votes that the negro is more 
intelligent and better qualified to use the elective 
franchise than the most refined and best edu- 
cated half of our community. Will they do it ? 

Lady Members in Parliament. —Gordon, in 
his Antiquities of Parliament, says : “ The 

ladies of birth and quality sat in council with 
the Saxon Witas. The Abbess Hilda (says Bede) 
presided in an ecclesiastical synod. In Wight- 
fred’s great council at Becooficeled. A. U. 694, 
the abbesses sat and deliberated, and five of 
them signed decrees of that council along with 
the king, bishops and nobles. King Edgar’s 
charter to the Abbey of Crowland, A. D. 961, 
was with the consent of the nobles and abbesses 
who signed the charter. In Henry the Third’s 
and Edward the First’s time, four abbesses were 
summoned to Parliament, namely, of Shaftes- 

bury, Berking, St. Mary of Winchester, and of 
Wilton. In the thirty-fifth of Edward the Third 
were summoned, by writ of Parliament— to ap- 
pear there by their proxies — namely, Mary 
Countess of Norfolk, Alienor Countess of Or- 
mond, Anna Despenser, Phillipa Countess of 
March, Johanna Fitzwater, Agnata Couhtess of 
Pembroke, Mary de St. Paul, Mary de Boos, 
Mathilda Countess of Oxford, Catherine Count- 
ess of Athol. These ladies were called ad 
colloquium ad Iracfatum by their proxies — a 
privilege peculiar to the peerage to appear and 
act by proxy.” 

A correspondent of the Springfield (Mass.) 
Republican, describing the Louisiana Constitu- 
tional Convention, says : “The members are 
about equally divided between colored and 
white, and are interspersed without distinction. 
There, is more familiarity and social freedom, 
as is the case here generally, among them than 
I am accustomed to ; and for something else 
here, the negroes are not black. Only five or 
six out of the whole number are of foil black 
blood. The rest are a kaleidoscope of color. 
There are fine gentlemen among them, with 
elegant French manners, and betruying no 
consciousness of social inferiority. One in par- 
ticular, Mr. Pinchbeck, would be remarked any- 
where ; tall, well-formed; well-dressed, with 
polished, insinuating address, open counten- 
ance, dreamy, luxurious eyes, high forehead, 
clear cut features, pointed Spanish moustache, 
color about half way between silver and gold ; 
"altogether one of the handsomest men yon are 
likely to meet. One of the most sensible speak- 
ears, too, in the convention, acting as mediator, 
as he has a right to do, between white and 

Miss BubdettCoutts’s charities, it is said, are 
always well directed. Her latest effort for the 
relief of the tenants of her model lodging-houses 
in London enables them to obtain the franchise 
to which they are entitled by the Beform Bill. 
She undertakes to pay their rates for them, with- 
out increasing their, rents ; and, as a mark of 
gratitude, the householders thus transformed 
into voters illuminated their dwellings on the 
night of the 4th instant At her suggestion an 
association has feen formed to furnish work for 
the unemployed in road -making, cleaning 
streets, and in similar ways. Miss Coutts has 
undertaken to pay 250 persons for six months, 
at about fifty cents a day, and has given $1,500 
toward Hie road making fund. 

The London Star regrets that there is but one 
Miss Contts and adds, “ the destitute creatures 
in the east of London, who can hardly keep body 
and soul together, are summoned for poor rates, 
and they appear before the court actually gnaw- 
ing the orosts with which the charity of the 
public has provided them.” 

Ballot as Protection. — You may tpll me 
the negroes ought to vote because they are men 
and human beings, and need the ballot for 
their protection. I ought to vpte because I am 
a woman and a human being, and need the 
ballot for my protection. Prove their greater 
claim to the right, by their mental and moral 
superiority, and for myself I will be humbly 
silent. But when you coolly insist upon their 
greater claim to the elective franchise, in consid- 
eration of their “immense and potential ser- 
vices ” in the war, yon roll back the war-stained 
sod from the face of my dead.

We publish this article from the World to 
show that our' “ new friends ” are learning 
the argument, and giving the history of the 
past a patient investigation in* search of facts. 
Have no fears that, in the good time coming, 
when women shall be representatives in our na- 
tional councils and judges in our supreme 
courts, that, from lack of reasoning power, they 
will lower the tone of these convocations by 
substituting silks and laces for banks and tariffs. 

It might be hoped that women who have 
been daily readers of the World for the last six 
years would not compare unfavorably with a 
Republican Congress. As to revenging ourselves 
for past wrongs, know, then, our fathers, bro- 
thers, sons are all men. Can you not trust 
yourselves as we have for past years to the 
friends of your household ? 

Whenever we demand the right to vote, men 
turn up the whites of their eyes with a look of 
injured innocence, and say, Can you not trust us, 
your natural protectors ? Oh ! no ; we all 
be so happy in the good time coming there will 
be no revenge m our hearts; e. o. s. 


Since everybody Is now entirely satisfied that the bal- 
lot in Bures its possessor, sooner or later, all good and 
useful things in this world, and a better prospect of sal- 
vation in the heavenly, let ns all getylown on our hands 
and knees and cry “ Laudamus” to Manchester and to 
o Mistress Maxwell, to wnom belong the glory of taking 
the first step in the great forward movement of modern 
civilization. The city in which the principle of female 
suffrage has first been reduced to practice and the ma- 
tron who first exercised that blessed privilege of free 
women are destined to reoeive the veneration olall com- 
ing time. 

Suffrage, “ broad and general as the'casing air,” hedged 
In by no bigoted distinctions of hue, of race, or of sex, 
is destined to be the great law, the cherished safeguard 
of the future. To this conclusion the whole course of 
modern .thought evidently tends. The icy and pointed 
logic of Mill is at one with the warm and not always 
logical eloquence ~of American female propagandists. 
Give a man a vote and you at once elevate him in the 
scale of being. You endow him with intellect and vir- 
tue, you make him happy and rich, or else poor and 
contented, you increase the fruits of the earth, destroy 
disease, and banish crime. Manhood Suffrage in France 
has blessed the country with the best rf possible em- 
perors, has adorned Paris, and improved the provinces. 
To Germany it has given Bismarck : nd unity. Possibly, 
with the aid of Garibaldi, it would have constituted the 
Eternal City the capital of Italy, had it not been for the 
terrible Chassepot. 

Vot?s, then, ore evidently the great panacea of “all 
the ills that flesh is heir to. ” The ballot-box is the com- 
pensation to mankind for the box of Pandora. Why, 
then, should we hesitate to follow out the principle to its 
legitimate results, and allow the fairest half oi creation 
to share the privilege which is even now accorded^ the 
African who wears “ the shadowy livery of the burnished 
sun," and which in the inevitable course of events must 
soon be extended to the native American red man, and 
to the emigrant from the Celestial Empire ? Evidently 
the tide is too strong to be long resisted. The march of 
intellect, the spirit of the age, to say nothing of the 
good, the beautiful, and the true, demand it in thunder 
tones, which we have only to hear and to. obey. 

The necessity of the change being so clearly fore- 
shadowed practical men have only to occupy themselves 
with its effects. These must necessarily be many and 
important The advocates of Womanhood Suffrage con- 
tend that it will be a great moral-power, and that vice 
and intemperance will soon disappear from the land in 
which woman's usual salutary influence is backed by the 
power of her vote. Such ideas will, perhaps, seem 
Utopian to those who reflect that woman not only shared 
in the tall of man but was the efficient cause of it They 
will dismally anticipate a male revolt against female 
liquor laws, and shudder at the prospect of a war of 

Averting our eyes from these dark forebodings,- there 
are other probable results of a much more pleasing 
charaoter. Foremost among them will be a great im- 
provement in the elegance and manners of politics. 

Bough language and vulgar deportment have too often 
marked assemblages of the sterner sex. The refining 
presenoe of women among audienoea who meet to hear 
grave national questions discussed, win demand a more 
elegant bearing and choicer language. Nor will the im- 
provement be confined to mass meetings and ordinary 
canvassing. Like the recently enfranchised bondmen, 
women win naturally think that those who are qualified 
to vote are eligible to fill any post in the government. 
They wifl argue that their fine tact and persuasive pow- 
er will be admirably suited to diplomacy. Their flowing 
eloquence will add a charm to* the debates, of legis- 
lative bodies, and their high moral nature will give a 
loftier tone to executive administration. Thus female 
will be pittied against male candidates, and gallantry will 
require that, on the masculine side at least, a stricter 
courtesy shall be observed in the canvass than has here- 
tofore been the rule. In our legislative bodies a like im- 
provement will be perceptible. In the presence of ladies 
it will be impossible for members to indulge in the more 
easy than decorus habits which now amuse the galleries. 
The wordy warfare, if perchance shriller and more con- 
tinuous, will at least he less coarse and indecent Fisti 
cuffs will be unknown. 

The topics to be treated by political aspirants will be 
very much changed. Social and aesthetic questions will 
supersede political problems. Before an audience of 
ladles a speaker win no more discuss intricacies of 
finance than Mr. Dombey when little Paul propounded 
the momentous question, “ What’s'money ?” Therela- 
live merits of the Fanchon and the LambalU bonnet, of 
the gored walking dress and the train will be more agree 
able subjects than dry details of banking or tariffs. The 
leading features of the tariff, however, we may expect to 
see totally changed. Although it has been said that wo- 
man is not a reasoning animal, as she invariably jumps 
at conclusions instead of going through all the steps oi 
» logical process, she will not belong in deciding that a 
system which raises the price of silks, laces and gloves 
so extravagantly cannot be correct, and thus we may 
enter upon the road to free trade. It is true she may he 
tempted merely to shift the burden and to augment the 
duties on cigars, brandies and wines, besides doubling 
the excise on whiskey. Little eccentricities of this kind 
will be speedily corrected by experience and the infalli- 
ble as well as ineffable virtue which resides in the ballot 
A more serious danger to the eqilibrium of the govern- 
ment lies in the possibility of the new voters thinw» c 
that, in compensation for past exclusion, they are en- 
titled, for at least a considerable time, to a monopoly of 
power. The apparent justice of this would be a very 
captivating argument before a female audience. If the 
sex could be united upon this subject they would, in 
conjunction with the sympathizers of the other sex they 
can oount upon, be able to carry their point Should it 
come to this we may oonsole ourselves with the reflection 
that female government so far as we are able to Judge 
by experience, is not a bad thing. Three of the best 
epochs of English history are those of Elizabeth, Anne, 
and Victoria. A reversal of the 8alic law and a crown 
descendible in the female line have consequently been 
suggested as an improvement Catherine of Bussia was 
one of the ablest sovereigns who ever mounted the 
throne of the Czars. 

The moral world seems to move, as Bacon thought the 
physical did, in spirals. Possibly the phase of male 
domination has lasted long enough for the present, and 
woman is called to carry on the work. We can hope in 
that case that, when she is “ set free, regenerated, and 
disenthralled by the irresistible genius of universal 
emancipation,” she will temper justice with mercy and 
not revenge upon the present generation the wrongs 
which the tyrant man has inflicted upon her in the bar- 
baric past. 

had better rest for future action , if required.' And I 
«>uld not help but feel that if the fret Is as he believed 
there wa* a statesmanlike reason for his negative vote. 

If the fret is, however, otherwise, I trust it will be 
made apparent to the understandings of legislators, and 
I welcome any means that promise to show it 

It seems to me that tffis matter of woman’s inequality 
in the affairs of the commonwealth, her enforced position 
of inferiority and her extra measure of hardship in all 
business pursuits, is one that Is too often presented to 
her as a question of my right. This, although true and 
important to one class of them, is not a very clear or 
urgent view to those in easy positions or in afflnenoe, 
and who are often, from their social, advantages and 
piety, persona of a great deal of influence in woman’s 
affairs. With them the right, it is your duty to do aad 
secure to the weak and oppressed, ought to be urged, and 
conscience aroused to ait in judgment upon every ques- 
tion affecting woman’s rights. Thought and action in 
that direction must be made a Christian duty ; doing 
to others as you would that they should do to you, a ful- 
Ailing of the law of God. 

Pardon me if this seems an impertinent obtrusion of 
my sentiments upon yon ; my great desire that in tha 
mass of women a sense of duty to the subject of wo- 
man's rights may be aroused, is my excuse. 

Lady Physicians.— The Philadelphia Star 
says : There are at least half a dozen lady phy- 
sicians in that city, whose incomes severally 'ex- 
ceed two thousand dollars. In New York female 
physicians have been remarkably successful. 
The highest income of a female physician in 
this city is fifteen thousand dollars. Opposition 
has been made, both in this country and in 
England, to the policy of educating women for 
physicians. In Prance, however, the greatest 
liberality has been shown to women in this re- 
tempted merely to shift the burden and to augment tie gard » many of our best physicians have 
duties on cigars, brandies and wines, besides doublinJT S^^ted from French schools.. When Bliss 

Nightingale undertook to prepare herself for 
the education of nurses, there was no institu- 
tion in England suited to her wants, and she 
went to Germany to study. 


Miss S. B. Anthony : The two numbers of *« The 
Bevoluhon” were received yesterday. Enclosed find 
two dollars, amount of yearly subscription. 

I sincerely wish you success Ih your undertaking, and 
it seems to me the support given to a well-conducted 
paper in the interest of a truly impartial suffrage, will be 
a fair answer to the oft-recurring question of how much 
and in what numbers women themselves desire an equal 
place and privilege in the concerns of the common- 
wealth. A member of the Constitutional Conven- 
tion of New York told me that he voied a gain st fe- 
male suffrage in the convention for one controlling 
reason, that he did not believe any considerable number 
in comparison with the whole of the women of the 8tate 
desired it; and there being no imperative political 
reason for forcing the suffrage upon them as in the ease 
of the emancipates of the South, he thought the matter 

Housekeeping.— Ralph Waldo Emerson, all 
of whose views are entitled to respect, has ex- 
pressed them on the subject of housekeeping ; 
The progress of domestic living has been in 
cleanliness, in ventilation, in health, in deoo- 
rum, in countless means and arts of comfort, in 
the concentration of all the utilities of every 
clime in each house. The houses of the rich 
are confectionery shops, where we get sweet- 
meats and wine ; the houses of the poor are imi- 
tations of these to the extent of their ability. 
With these ends, housekeeping is not beautiful; 
it cheers and raises neither the husband, the* 
wife, nor the child ; neither the host, nor the 
guest ; it oppresses woman. A house kept to 
the end of prudence is laborious without joy ; a 
house kept to the end of display is impossible 
to all but a few women, £fnd the success is dearly 
bought ' 

Chabactebistic. —The St Louis Democra 
was considerably amused at three little girli 
playing one evening among the sage brush ii 
a back yard. Two of*«. them were ‘ ‘ making 
believe keep house ” a few yards distant fron 
each other— neighbors, as it ^ere. One o ? then 
says to the third little girl : “ There, now, 
Nelly, you go to Sarah’s house, ^nd stop a little 
while and talk, and then you come back and 
tell me what she says about me ; and then I’ll 
talk about her, then you go and tell her all I 
say, and then we’ll be mad and don’t speak to 
each other, just as our mothers do, you know. 
O, that’ll be such fun.” Bring woman up to 
more important things, and th&y will not have 
to set such sorry examples before their young

letter and every speech. Daniel Webster de- 
clared “his nomination was one not fit to be 
made bnt he and all the party chiefe had to 
support him to save the party. He was only 
nominated by the Whigs to prevent the Demo- 
crats from clutching him, precisely as is Grant 
to-day by the Republicans. More open-mouth- 
ed than Grant, he declared he was willing to be 
nominated by either party; and moreover, if 
rejected by both parties^ he should embark 
alone as an independent candidate, and abide 
the result 


Jt 1b most important that the people of this country 
should clearly understand the position in which they 
•re placed in reference to these Alabama claims. When 
•11 deduction is made tor faults of national character, 
there is in the generality of Englishmen • f and of good 
right feeling, which would, if only they were 
folly instructed as to that which the government of the 
day was doing, prevent any very great or frequent errors 
in our foreign policy. Three-fourths of- the warS in 
which England has been engaged would have been im- 
possible if the nation could have been made fully aware 
of what was taking place in the “ drifting ” period. 

Lord Hobart has written a letter to the Lon- 
don Timfis on the Alabama claims, which con- 
tains the extract above, the. leading idea of 
which is equally applicable to this government 
and nation. For it cannot be doubted that 
11 three-fourths” of the very ^reat errors “ in our 
policy” would be avoided, or easily remedied, 
if the people had beefi fully aware of what was 
taking place. But in this country, as well as 
in Great Britain, the people proper have very 
little to do with their government, either in its 
making' or execution ; and in our Presidential 
elections, nearly nothing. Practically and al- 
most literally in th^i particular, they are a grand 
“Know Nothing Party.” Surely no one will 
deny this as between them and General Grant. 
Catechised on all hands for his opinions on na- 
tional affairs, his only responses are peevish 
puffs of smoke from unquenchable cigars. 
Who knows or is likely to know whether there 
be anything more substantial in him ? 

Gen. Harrison weU} nominated to the presid- 
ency for better or worse, without a platform. 
The Websters and Clays, the Sewards and 
the Everetts of the party bowiug before 'his 
Littleness, that the people might be the 
more easily seduced into his support. Four 
■years afterwards, the platforms of both 
parties on the main question, the annexation 
of Texas to the Union, were so exactly 
alike that the difference between them was 
never discovered or discoverable. Nor until 
his nomination had one of the candidates, Mr. 
Polk, been discovered by a vast majority of 
those who gave him their votes. He was as lit- 
tle known before he was President as he has 
been respected since. 

The old Whig party cursed the Mexican war, 
to the very corrupting of the English language, 
and then nominated General Taylor, the hero 
of it, ior his availability. But for the part he 
bore in that wanton butchery, at the bidding of 
slavery, he would have been as unknown as the 
blood-hounds with which he hunted the Semi- 
nole Indians a few years before, also at the be- 
hest of slavery. Being nominated, he began 
an electioneering career of writing and speech- 
making, to the mortification of his party, ad- 
dressing all classes and parties alike, but in so 
vague a manner as that it is not known to this 
day (nor caipd) to whom he belonged, “i am 
a Whig but not an ultra Whig " (“ Radical ” it 
would be to-day), was the spinal column of every 

Abraham Lincoln was nominated on a plat- 
form embodying on one hand the Declaration 
of Independence, and on the other a stem ana- 
thema which virtually branded the immortal 
John Brown as “ guilty of the gravest of crimes /” 
And amid the kindling flames of the rebellion a 
Republican Senator declared in Congress “ The 
Republican party do condemn the act of John 
Brown; but do not condemn the act of Virginia 
in hanging him.” And Senator Sumner, in 
speeches of most tempestuous eloquence proved, 
branded and execrated slavery as a five or seven 
headed Barbarism, and closed with most fervid 
appeals to the people to vote Mr. Lincoln into 
the presidency, when he knew that a part of his 
record was : 

That he was opposed to any interference with that 
“ Barbarism '* in the States, or in the District of Colum- 
bia, without consent of and compensation to the master ; 
he was not opposed to admitting more slave States ; he 
was in favor of a Fugitive Slave Law ; he was opposed to 
negro suffrage ; and to any elevation whatever of the 
colored race to equality with the white. 

And further, as reported in his debate with 
Stephen A. Douglas : 

“lam not, nor never have been, in favor of mak- 
ing voters or jurors of negroes, nor qualifying them to 
bold office, and I will say in addition to this, that there 
is a physical difference between the black and white 
races, which I believe will forever forbid the two races 
from living together on terms of social and political 
equality— and, inasmuch as they cannot live, while they 
do remain together, there must be a position of superior 
and inferior ; and I, as much as any other man, am in 
flavor of having the superior position assigned to the 
white race. * * 

His very last public speech, made on his return 
from Richmond after its surrender, showed 
that the war had made but slight change 
in his opinions, none at all in his prejudices. 
But for the masterly strategy of Mr. Sumner in 
the Senate, lassooing a number of Democrats 
into voting with him against it, Reconstruction 
would have commenced in Louisiana on the 
basis of white male suffrage, the poor blacks 
being left as completely in the power of their 
old masters as ever, the hate of those masters 
re-kindled against them by the war, with the 
very fires of hell. 

We had a candidate once for Vice-President, 
who was President of the American Tract Socie- 
ty at the same time. He too electioneered lib- 
erally lor himself. Being a zealous supporter 
of the respectable religion of the time, the 
comic papers showed him as a tall, portly gen- 
tleman, with his benignant face toward the 
North, having both hands extended to the ad- 
miring crowd, filled with primers, tracts and 
testaments to be traded of course for their 
votes. Behind him stood the South, gazing de- 
lighted into his huge coat pockets bursting out 
with whips, fetters, bowie-knives, revolvers, 
and the whole paraphernalia of slavery. 

There is need of no more illustration, or the 
history of Andrew Johnson as candidate for the 
Vice-Presidency would furnish a volume. It is 
enough for the present to say that those who 

nominated him knew him intimately from the 
opening of the rebellion and long before: 
When hostilities commenced he was a Senator 
in Congress from Tennessee. Associated with 
him vere Collamer of Vermont, Hamlin of 
Maine, Hale of New Hampshire, Sumner and 
Wilson of Massachusetts, Seward of New York* 
Wade of Ohio, and Henry Winter Davis of 
Maryland. These men made him Vice-Presi- 
dent, knowing that his sympathies were from 
the outset as to-day, who Uy with the rebdlion. 
He made no secret of his opinions in the Sen- 
ate. The infamous Crittenden propositions he 
supported to the very last, though every Sena- 
tor voted against them except Seward, and he 
refused to answer when his name was called. 
Tho9Q propositions wculd have, riveted a more 
humiliating slavery cn the North than ever 
shamed or scourged the human race. And yet, 
to the astonishment of even Jefferson Davis, 
who had not then seceded from the Senate, he 
declared that “ unless the North give us wha, 
we consider the needful guarantees for slavery un - 
der the Constitution, I will go as faT as he who 
goes farthest!” And his own demands, when he 
pressed them as amendments to the Constitu- 
tion, cast the Crittenden measures entirely into 
the shade. 

Such was the man whom the Republican 
party leaders, in Congress and out, made Vice- 
President, knowing well his whole career, ‘and 
with the aid of Wilkes Booth, fit accomplice in 
so fell a work, they made him President. 

The people were loyal to their leaders. The 
people trust them stilL But it shall not be the 
fault of “ The Revolution” if they do so longer. 
Many of the present republican leaders were 
democrats while pay and plunder were on that 
side. Now they share the spoils with the re- 
publicans. Birds of prey, they snuff the carcass 
from afar. They fed on their own party till the 
last worm died and the last fire was quenched. 
Now they are feasting on republican rottenness. 

To the Jews they were Jews while Jewing paid. 
Now they are Greeks for the same reason; be- 
ing made thieves to all men, that by all means 
they may steal some. 

And the blinded, hoodwinked people must 
pay the costs, though their streets wail and 
shiver with famine and nakedness and winter’s 
cold. The people are but the cards with which 
political blacklegism plays and wins. Congress 
is a cheat and a sham. For a time it pretended 
to maintain a show of decency by appointing-^ 
committees of investigation that some of the 
diabolisms of the government should be ex- 
posed. But it was found to be so delicate a 
business, implicating numbers of the whited 
sepulchres in all the departments, that finally, 
on motion of a rabid Republican, Spaulding of 
Ohio, all committees of the House then taking 
testimony forthwith ceased to do so with- 
out farther orders. To this infamous procedure 
the people also are blind, as to a thousand 
others more heinous still. 

A writer from Washington in the last New 
York Mercury says : “Among the topics of con- * 
versation now at the capital is the prevalence # 
and increase of drunkenness, among both Re- 
presentatives and Senators,” confirming fully 
Senator Wilson’s startling report last year in 
Boston. To this horrible fact also the people 
seem to be blind. Indeed, the whole nation 
seems a case of “ suspended animation ;” a 
frightful asphyxy, the end of which must soon 
be deatli. And the most alarming feature is 
that nearly non* seem to know that anything is 

lit* fUMltttiott 


the matter. Truly might the cry of the Hebrew 
minstrel be uttered: 

“ The prophets prophesy falsely. 

And the priests bear role by their moans. 

And my people love to have it so; 

But what will ye do in the end thereof?”

The New York Times says Senator Cragin of 
New Hampshire, in his late speech in the Sen- 
ate “ \£ould impose no qualifications on suf- 
frage but what God had given to each sane citi- 
zen not convicted of crime.” The question 
then is, why does Mr. Cragin put in a brace of 
qualifications in his very sentence eulogizing 
* ‘ universal” suffrage ? If suffrage be a gif t from 
Heaven, why take it from any human being? 
The fact is, adds the Times, that the loose talk 
of suffrage as a God-given right leads into pal- 
pable absurdities, and When suffrage is denied 
to a lunatic because he is incompetent to exercise 
it, the whole argument for “ universal” suffrage 
disappears. Not long ago, however, the same 
journal declared “ New York has universal suf- 
frage excepting a small property qualification 
for negroes. ” “ The Revolution” thinks “ this 
loose t lk” about universal suffrage in the Times 
not only leads to, but is ‘ 4 palpable absurdity.” 
For what can be more absurd than the idea that 
universal suffrage means not the whole, not 
a majority even, but only^a small .'minority ? 
One-hall the people of the country are disfran- 
chised to begin with, and one word of four let- 
ters, male, is the fiery bolt more potent than all 
the terrors of Jove, to cleave them down. It is 
not pretended that they are idiots, lunatics, 
paupers or crim in al s . And yet their husbands 
and brothers, in solemn conventions and legisla- 
tures, have deliberately doomed them to even 
worse degradation and abasement than any of 
these are necessarily compelled to suffer. The 
idiot school has lifted many a poor being to at 
least the position of a voter and a citizen. The 
lunatics are every year restored to reason and 
the rights of citizenship. Paupers may become 
presidents if they are so fortunate as to marry 
wives who know the alphabet, if they them- 
selves do not And presidents can pardon 
criminals into voters at the rate of fifty thou- 
sand a year. But alas for woman ! God made 
her woman, not she herself ; and she cannot add 
one cubit to her political stature. The Ethio- 
pian cannot change his skin, nor the leopard 
his spots, nor woman her sex, nor h er p olitical 
status. Usurpation has trodden her down, un- 
til politically she is not reckoned at all. We 
have “Universal Suffrage,” according to the 
Times , and not a woman is known at the ballot 
box. She is the mother of men but is not 
known among men ; has ho right which men 
are bound to respect. Saturn, it was said, de- 
voured his children. White male citizenship 
devours its mother. In Patmos “the dragon 
stood before the woman to devour her child as 
soon as it was bom.” In this nation the babe 
becomes the dragon, and swallows the woman. 
And this political cannibalism gets baptized as 
“ democracy, republicanism and Christianity 
and prates of “ Universal Suffrage ; liberty and 
equality ; no taxation without representation ; 
and all just governments deriving their power 
from the consent of the governed!” Think of 
it, “Messrs. Times. P . P .

Explanation. — It is due to Mr. Garrison to 
say that the letter from him, upon which we 
commented last week, was written as a private 
expostulation, and not intended by him for the 
public, eye. It will be seen that we have a de- 
partment for private correspondence, criticising 
ourselves, our associates, our paper, and its ob- 
jects, and we are glad to have everybody know 
what is thought of us, by foe os well as friend, 
and we hope none vill whisper in our ears what 
may not be proclaimed on'the housetop. 


At the recent meeting in Boston of the Mas- 
sachusetts Anti-Slavery Society, Wendell Phil- 
lips said : 

The pusillanimity of the Republican party has already 
brought loss as well as disgrace upon themselves. It 
they had been true to the'nagro they would not have 
lost the 8tates of Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Ohio and 
Kentucky. If they continue to prove false to the 
blacks, the party will go to ruin. A party should have 
some principle and stand by it The Republicans 
ougnt long ago to have put Sherman, Trumbull, Fes- 
senden and the other obstructionists out of the way. 
Do you ask what shall we do ? Try to do better. Give 
the next nomination to a man whose life pledges him to 
you— not his words only. And when you attack the 
treacherous President do it directly , by impeachment— 
not by undermining and circumventing. 

The Republicans have failed through their own blun- 
der. If one direct and above-board effort had been 
made, the President would have been removed, the 
people would have sustained the action, the crisis 
would have been safely passed. If Johnson is unfit to 
hold the powers of President why not siill impeach 
him. The course now pursued is not statesmanlike; 
it is letting down the enthusiasm of the nation. Neither 
will the matter be amended by putting Grant in The 

Mr. Phillips then read a resolution of thanks to the 
ladies who had aided the cause by serving at the re- 
freshment tables, thus enabling out-of-town friends to 
get their dinner and tea without going out into the wet 

“ Resolved, That the thanks of this Society be pre- 
sented to those ladies who have so cordially devoted their 
time and labor to our social entertainment by presiding 
at the tables through the day.” 

•Mr. Phillips thinks that “ had the Republi- 
cans been true to the negro, they would not 
have lost so many States at the last autumn 
elections.” If ha and his friends had been true 
to the women of the country, they would have 
at least saved the negro; and in Kansas and 
Wisconsin the ballot might and probably would 
have been given to woman. He well and truly 
adds, “ If they continue to prove false to the 
blacks, the party will go to ruin.” And if Mr. 
Phillips proves false to the women, .the cause of 
the blacks will be ruined also. Reformers, too, 
as well as Republicans, “ should have some 
principles, and stand by them.” ' And if “Re- 
publicans have failed through their own blun- 
der,” so too, it may be interred, have the expe- 
diency abolitionists who ask suffrage for only 
one-half of those who have equal right to it. 
The republican party in Connecticut have as 
good right to stab the black man in his claim 
to the ballot, as have abolitionists to do the 
same or worse as regards women. Jn the South, 
black men vote and are voted for. They frame 
constitutions, enact Jaws, and execute them. 
They sit on juries, plead at the bar, and will 
soon come as judges to the bench. But the 
women of Boston, the “hub of the universe,’* 
“ the Athens of the world,” do none of these 
things. So let them busy themselves in pio- 
viding collations for abolitionists who ignore 
their rights, and be paid in polite votes of 
thanks “for suoh cordial devotion of their

(Spelt Gaol on Cell Wardrobe.^ v 
Monday, Jan. 20, 1868. J 

Deab Parker Pillsbuby : Am prohibited 
from writing editors by the Governor. Can 
receive no letters, nor send any, except endors- 
ed by him with initials in red ink, J. J. As I 
write Durant to-day in London, they have taken 
away everything hut my qay-e-iy — so pardon the 
colored paper. I have been in many jails, but 
never before in a murderer’s cell. The govern- 
ment, however, kindly pay my board. In- 
asmuch as I dropped one hundred thousand 
dollars in giving thorn street railways, it is fair 
that I 4 get back some interest. My cell is nine 
feetsquare, walls ninety feet thick, lock one foot 
square; key ten inches long and weighs a pound, 
straw bed, no pillow, no mat, on cold stone* floor, 
no candle allowed here from 5 p. m. to 7 p, m. 
Fourteen hours in dark. No clothes since Fri- 
day night. Body searched, but not examined to 
see if I was a Hebrew. Nothing left in iqy 
possession but these few sheets of gayety ! 
No knife to clean fingers, no comb for hair, 
no one allowed to come into my cell. Came in 
with police escort, armed with 8nyder Break- 
heads, and am not allowed to see a newspaper. 
Know nothing of what has happened since leav- 
ing New York, Jan. 8. . 

. Theory of British law,- “ everybody innocent 
till found guilty.” Practice, “ every body guilty 
till found innocent” No letters to press are 
allowed to pass until first submitted to Sir 
Thomas Larkom, the high authority at Dublin. 

First night was whistling “ Yankee Doodle,” 
when I was peremptorily stopped by the jailor, 
“ Not allowed.” Sung “ Hail Columbia Happy 
Land.” Not allowed. Against rules. Was told 
if I repeated it, I should be reported. Sc began 
to talk. Reminds me of Peter Cagger, oT'the 
Albany Regency at Chicago : “ Unless the gen- 
tleman come to order, shall be obliged to call 
him by name.” 

Tell Mrs. Stanton and Miss Anthony that 
tneir paper caused the trouble. They gave me 
fifty copies, and some of the Woman’s Suffrage, 
Kansas epigram campaign pamphlets. My Irish 
papers passed ; but that word “ Revolution ” 
— the name of the paper — was too much. All 
were at once confiscated. Police authorities 
read it. The books and the papers were sub- 
mitted to the Inspector-General, and he brought 
me before the magistrate. They read the ar- 
ticles on Finance, Press, Woman, and Miss 
Anthony’s speech at Rahway on the American 
Senators, and treason was at once pronounced, 
and here I am. Give yourself no trouble, shed 
to tears ; my friends Beecher, Phillips, Greeley 
and TiUon, will be sure that 1 get my deserts. I 
have just finished a long editorial to the Lon- 
don Times , but the Governor has prohibited it. 
Of course I have hear£ nothing from Adams. 
Probably playing poker with Stanley, as Seward 
used to play whist with Lord Lyons. 

Truly, Geo. F. Train.

The following letter from Miss Ellen L. Calla- 
nan of the Hill, Clonakilty, was sent to Mr. Train 
while in prison : 

The HiLii, Clonakilty, - ) 
Monday Evening. J 

Dear Sir : I have just read of your arrest 
at Queenstown.' The arrest and imprisonment of 
Irish Americans has become of late so much a 
matter of course, that such a proceeding has 
ceased to excite even a faint expression of sur- 
prise; but the arrest of a native-born American 
is something new, and has given rise to a feel- 
ing of intense astonishment, coupled with indig- 
nation, in many minds throughout the country. 
America has been so very long about putting 
the government of this country into the right 
track as regards the treatment of American cit- 
izens that it is not a matter of wonder they now 
believe they can treat even native Americans in 
the same cavalier manner in which it has been 
their custom these few years past to 
treat Irish bom citizens and citizens 
bom of Irish parent^ who hail from 
the great western Republic of America 
I write to tender you my sympathy and the 
sympathy of many of my friends on the 
disagreeable commencement of your visit to 
our unfortunate country. Do not blame the 
people of Ireland, for it is the hospitality which 
the alien Executive of poor Ireland generally 
tenders to all who wear “ square-toed boots.” 
I send you my kind feelings and respects. I 
have read much about you — both of your ad- 
vocacy of woman suffrage in your own land, 
and your kind sympathy with the people of 
our trampled land ; nor could I leave this op- 
portunity of telling you to slip. I trust your 
detention will not be for long, and that your 
message to President Johnson will meet with 
a speedy answer wid speedier action. 

With kindest regards and wishes for your re- 
lease, I remain, sincerely yours, 

Ellen L. Calkin an.

only three-eighths of an inch of boiler 


Off Ireland, January 17, 1868. 
Editors of the Revolution : 

Revolutions never go backward. Is that 
really so ? Do they always go forward ? Tours 
I hope will. It was a Revolution to be the 
first to name a newspaper “The Revolution.” 
Ten thousand newspapers and only one Revo- 
lution. Yet we live in the age of Revolution. 
Going to sea in a boat of 3-8 of an inch 
boiler between me and the fishes is Revolution. 
Nine thousand votes for women in Kansas was 
Revolution. The emancipation of twenty mil- 
lions of white serfs in Russia; and four millions 
of black slaves in America at the same time, 
was Revolution. Lord Derby and Disraeli lead- 
ing the liberal party, bottling up Bright, Stuart 
Mill and Gladstone, and adding one million of- 
voters to the English Franchise, was Revolution. 
Inaugurating, organizing subsidies and prac- 
tically building the World’s Highway to China 
during our civil war, was more than Revolution. 
Putting two millions of men and a thousand 

chips of war intoJhe battle field or battle water 
— for an idea — that idea being nationality, was 
Revolution. As grand as earthquakes, hurri- 
canes and volcanoes ; a meteoric shower of parrot 
guns, mineral balls and bombshells ; disbanding 
that army — turning loose their military — hu- 
manity hunting sportsmen — reducing it from 
2,000,000 to 50,000 was Revolution. Asia send- 
ing America to Europe as an Embassador is 
Revolution. While the Pope's temporal power 
is going down in Italy, the Tycoon’s spiritual 
power is going up in Japan. What is it but 
Revolution ? Congress, wiping out Johnson to 
kill the one-man power of Lincoln is as much 
Revolution as it was Revolution for Johnson to 
wipe out the one-man power of Congress. Bis- 
marck, wiping out the work of two Napoleons 
—doing as much in sixty days as they did in 
sixty years — vfas Revolution. A special police- 
man of London in 1848 — the special policeman 
of all Europe in 1868 is Revolution. But the 
greatest Revolution that has ever been record- 
ed will be when America ceases to toady 
to England, and Americans discharge their wet- 
nurse, and being ninety one years of age, go 
into business; for themselves. 

George Francis Train. 


The New York World, of Saturday last, con- 
tains a number of letters written by Mr. Train 
on his passage to England, which we would 
gladly give our readers in “ The Revolution,” 
were its colums of capacity sufficient Of their 
quality there is no need to speak. Let them 
be read, as they will be by myriads, and they will 
find their proper place in the public estima- 
tion. The following is one of them. Its state- 
ments of fact as to the condition of the South 
are confirmed by clouds of competent wit- 
nesses. Nor does he do the Duchess herself 
more than justice when he assures her, “ That 
every New England Abolitionist appreciates 
her untiring devotion to the anti-slavery cause, 
and every true reformer respects her char- 
acter : ” 

On Board the Scotia, ) 

Off Ireland, January 16, 1868. J 
To Her Grace the Duchess of Sutherland, London : 

Every American is familiar with your name. Your 
splendid letter to the American women is in all our 
memories. Every true reformer respects your character. 
Every New England Abolitionist appreciates your un- 
tiring devotion to the anti-slavery cause. Our Harriet 
Beecher Stowes almost worship you. For more than a 
quarter of a century you have espoused the cause of the 
blacks. Thanks to your exertions, through Exeter Hall 
and Lord Shaftesbury, our four millions of once unhappy 
slaves (who, some scoffers say, had what they shall eat, 
what they shall drink, and wherewithal they shall be 
clothed ; who, under the old patriarchal system, pos- 
sessed cottages, churches, schools, doctors, and pursuit 
of happiness ; who never knew want, misery, or starva- 
tion), are now happy freemen ! Slavery, thanks to Exeter 
Hall, is eradicated for ever from American soill We 
have killed slavery bg nearly killing the slave. But Revo- 
lution is the result — Revolution in word, thought, action. 
Intelligent English travellers on board our steamer say 
gaunt famine stares the freedman in the face. No 
hats, no shoes, clothes worn out ; no chickens, hogs 
eaten up, corn all gone ; no rice, no potatoes, shanties 
roofless ; no Are, no coal or wood ; furniture sold, chil- 
dren half naked, women starving ; no chance to work, 
plantations running to waste. Every little railway 
station is filled with the half-starved wretches, waiting 
for some passing passenger to throw them a bone or a 
crust oi bread. Another West Indian picture. Planters 
having no capital, overdraw their accounts with factors* 
and the cotton which costs twenty cents to produce only 
netting eight cents, it has failed the factors. So that as 
January is the month to plough, February to sow, and 
nobody having money or seed they cannot employ labor. 

hence ruin and disaster have wrecked the once happy 
South. Black and white alike involved in the general 
ruin. As Exeter Hall joined in a boay the Confederate 
cause, showing the deep sympathy the British aristo- 
cracy had in the slaveholders’ rebellion, I feel that I am 
doing you a kind act in showing you the terrible state 
of the poor blacks in the South. I am commissioned by 
a large and influential body of them US ask your Grace 
for some practical demonstration of your long-lived 
friendship. They feel in their hour of need that they 
can depend upon you and your noble confreres of Exeter 
Hall. Any donations which you may have, or may col- 
lect for this unhappy race that your people planted on 
American soil, can be. sent to our minister, Charles' 
Francis Adams, who considers the negro a man and a 
brother, but dees not think our Irish-Amerlcan citizens 
in the English provinces have any rights which our gov • 
eminent is bound to respect. A Gaudaloupe massacre 
is in the Soutfiero air. The blacks are armed, and blood 
will be shed before they will starve. For God’s sake let 
your noble heart swell out with some substantial token 
of your love for this people before it is too late. Should 
yon do me the courtesy to acknowledge this letter, 
please address Morley’s Hotel, Trafalgar square, Lon- 
don. With every respect, sincerely, 

George Francis Train. 


Toe Hebrew prophet walked unharmed in the den of 
lions. So, too, our friend and countryman Geo. Francis 
Train has become a lion tamer, surpassing Van Amburgh 
him welf. 

The New York Mercury thinks the arrest of George 
Francis Train at Cork was the greatest blunder John 
Bull has committed yet. The Derby government will 
yet discover that they have now an antagonist on hand 
unlike the patient, peaceable Seward. 

Our diplomatizing Secretary of State, indeed, might 
well take a lesson firom Train in the art of enforcing de- 
batable claims. Who can number the voluminous dis- 
patches which our venerable Secretary has written to 
demonstrate the justice of America’s right to be indem- 
nified for the injuries inflicted on her commerce by the 
depredations of the Alabama ? And all without effect. 
But George Francis has been as prompt sb Seward has 
bedh procrastinating. Beyond question. Train has ren- 
dered himself liable to a second arrest by the assumption 
of this new role; but will the British government ven- 
ture to repeat the blunder ? If they should rearrest him 
and bring him to trial as a preacher and promoter of 
treason, George Francis, because of his American birth, 
will be entitled to have six foreigners on his jury, which 
would insure his acquittal, and triumph over the govern- 
ment; while, if they leave him at large, and suffer him 
to go ahead, his appeals to the public in behalf of Ireland 
and Fenianism may rekindle the embers of disaffection, 
and set the island onoe-more in a blaze. It is plain, 
then, that Train has already got the British government 
into a dilemma, either horn of which will gore them. 

Important if True. — The newspaper talk to- 
day is “ that Parker Pillsbury, the old abolition- 
ist and co-worker with Garrison and Phillips, is 
to stamp New Hampshire along with Henry Clay 
Deane of Iowa, for the Democratic ticket.” 

The report may be true, bat had not reached 
the said editor’s ear before. The motto of 
“The Revolution” is “Educated, Suffrage, 
irrespective of Color or Sex ; ” and if the De- 
mocracy of that State have stumping to do in 
that line, let them apply at 37 Park Row (Room 
17), and their demand shall be met to the fullest 
possible extent. 

A Black Man on the Ballot for Woman: 
— Charles Langston, brother of the better known 
JohnM. Langston, Esq., was, with other men of 
his color, ministers and lagmen, in the field as# 
opponents of woman’s right of suffrage during 
the campaign in Kansas of Mrs. Stanton and 
Miss Anthony there last autumn. Langston 
defines himself on the question thus ; agreeing 
exactly with, Reverend L S. Kallock : 

Conferring the right of suffrage upon women would 
be very bad policy; decent women would have nothing 
to do with it, while bad women Would vote; and the 
result would be that pimps and prostitutes would rule 
the day. esnadallv in cities like Leavenworth. 

Gbn. Grant, it is said, is quite demonstrative 
on one important question now agitating many 
of the State Legislatures, namely the liquor 
question. The Washington correspondent of 
the Connecticut Courant says : 

The leader in this week’s Independent, written *by 
Theodore Tilton, who spent two days here, last week, 
arreBts general attention in this city. Tilton insinuates 
that Grant was tipsy on a recent Sunday. Copperheads 
here have been circulating a monstrous falsehood in 
reference to the General, accusing him of beastly drun- 
kenness on a public street That there was a slight 
foundation for the story is not denied, and the General as 
deeply regrets it as any of his friends, but the current 
stories upon the subject are cruel exaggerations. 

The Hartford Times , a democratic Journal, 
comments on its Repablican neighbor thus : 

The Courant suppressed the telegraphic dispatch 
which was sent to it. 

Not “beastly” but “slightly” drunk in the public 
streets on Sunday. That is the story sent on by the 
correspondent of the Courant and other papers— and 
which the Courant suppresses. It is notorious in Wash- 
ington that General Grant was found on F. street, in 
the capital of the nation, on Sunday, Jan. 5, intoxicated, 
and that he was conducted to more private quarters by 
friends; and that only a few days previous, during the 
Christmas holiday?, in a similar condition. The Cour- 
ant’s correspondent alludes to the facts, |which Tilton 
touches in the Independent, as follows: 

“Occasionally a Presidential candidate is seen fuddled 
in the streets ; but, as this happens only on a Sunday, it 
cannot be said to interfere with public business !” 


Readers of “ The Revolution ” will be glad 
to see the following, when told that it was writ- 
ten on Sunday and by one of the soundest Or- 
thodox ministers in America or out of it— the 
editor of the Church Union. 

wro VOTES. 

That every mind will one day tell who shall rule and 
what shall be the laws of the land, no sane man or 
woman can doubt. That the mind of a person encased 
in a rum-soaked casket, redolent of years of inebrity, is 
no better than the mind of a pure and good woman, is 
so great a truth that a paper has been started to teach 
this wonderful new and revolutionary idea. 

Beecher has said the devil owns New York. Why? 
Because he does all the voting. He has some nine 
thousand grog-shops running night and day, every one of 
them a hell epitomized. Stretch them out, and see what 
a Broadway they will make. Nine thousand numbers 
to one street, more than four avenues, from the Battery 
to Bloomingdale, parallel with each other, every house 
a grog-shop and every home a hell! No wonder the 
devil owns New York. These pothouses are the homes 
ofthe rulers of the city, and there are good Christian 
men who have labored here thirty years, and are now 
wrestling under a city debt of twenty million dollars. 
Their plaints are enough to make one week. They are 
helpless as slaves in Barbary. They organize Citizen's 
Associations, and vainly attempt with about thirtyt hens- 
and sober and honest men to outvote ninety thousand 
rascals. Gentlemen, when your millennium comes in 
this way, wake us up. 

Now there hath arisen one Elizabeth Cady Stanton, said 
to be the daughter of a judge, therefore of good blood, 
and fit to live in Fifth avenue, and doubtless if she would 
devote her mind to parties, balls, operas, smoutching 
money from her liege lord, flirting with Bev. (permitted 
by a vote of editors Church Union) Cream. Cheeses, getting 
tight on whiskey punches, and otherwise living like a 
lady, she would be noticed somewhat But, strange per- 
versity ! she gets it into her head that there are about 
three hundred thousand kble-bodied women in New 
York that know about as much as the keepers of those 
nine thousand grog-shops and their patrons-induding 
sundry doctors of divinity, who think Paul didn’t want 
women to be of any use in the world— and thinks, also, 
that these women are about as pure and quite as likely 
to advocate clean streets or clean morals as the patrons, 
pimps and priests of the pothouses aforesaid. (Brother 

you say this is hard on the priests. Are you aware that 
more than half the clergy, yea, two-thirds of theevan- 
gelical ministry in New York, drink wine, and many 

worse ? Where do they buy it, if not at the pothouses ? 
No matter if Bridget gets it). This strange woman hath 
takdn to her one Parker Pfllsbury (an infidel, we hear 
Sorry for that Could she find a Christian though ?) and 
a poor crazy trampay builder named Train, and with the 
heart of another woman to stay her up, these four leave 
come like the four Hebrew children into this furnace. 
Now, we need not tell our readers that not a Fifth avenue 
noodle but will turn up at this high-blooded daughter of 
a judge. “ And what fanaticism ! They expect to set up 
a revolution. Ha ! ha ! ha ! And woman vote ? The 
Bible is against it," says our poor whimpering Christian 
taxpayer, who is President of the Citizen’s Association, 
and pays, and prays too, for a revolution. “ No, no. If 
we cannot outnumber the thieves and pothouse politi- 
cians without woman, I shall join the opposition to put 
down this radicalism.” 

Noble, brave little woman ! we never saw her in our 
life. But henceforth, woman of “ The Revolution,” we 
hope you will let us help you' all we can. All the power 
this paper has gotten it has gained by integrity to the 
right. All hail ! “ Revolution. ’ ’ We don’t ask if you have 
money. God sends that when he has a work to do. We 
don’t ask of you to take our creed. We only say Christ 
will often be the only friend you will have, if you take 
him once tod forever into yonr councils. If you do not, 
you will have up-hill work. Never mind about the creed. 
You vote down the Bible, and we’ll vote it up ; and if 
we beat, you must obey. If we don’t, we dont’t say what 
we’ll do, only we won’t do wrong if the heavens frl]. 
Hail! “Revolution." 



A complimentary dinner was given to Wm. 
Cullen Bryant, Esq., the veteran editor of the 
N. Y. Evening Post, on Thursday evening of 
last week. The New York World says of it : 

The dinner given at Delmonico's, last evening, to 
William Cullen Bryant, as a faithful exponent and 
persistent advocate of the great principles of Free 
Trade, was in every respect a most brilliant and de- 
lighful reunion. While the banquet was tendered 
to him solely in his capacity of political economist, 
by those who are alike earnest believers in the Free 
Trade faith as the only system that comports with 
national well-being, and of his thorough and unswerving 
adherence to the great cause, it is impossible in fact 
(however desirable it might seem in theory), to ignore 
for the time his great claims upon the respect of all 
classes as an admirable poet and distinguished littera- 
teur. And while, much of the hearty applause that 
greeted Mr. Bryant in the course of the evening was 
primarily accorded on the express ground of unswerving 
devotion to those economical theories of which he is a 
fair representative in America, there was none (he less 
apparent a most zealous and glowing appreciation of his 
poetical genius. 

Mr. David Dudley Field presided on the occasion, 
having on his right the guest of the evening, William 
Cullen Bryant. Among the gentlemen present were 
Cyrus W. Field, 8. J. Tilden, Rev. Mr. Blanchard, Judge 
Pierpont, Isaac W. Bailey, Joshua Leavitt, Parke Godwin, 
Mr. De Forrest, Mr. Prime, and others. Letters com- 
plimentary to the guest and his principles, were read 
from Hon. Amasa Walker of Mass, tod Gerrit Smith 

Miss Sallie Brownson Goodrich lectured in 
Dodworth Hall last Saturday evening, on the 
“ Midnight Mission” in behalf of “ abandoned 
women. She said that the work which the 
Mission performs is that which Christ would 
perform if he were on earth -the saving of 
frail, fallen women. Only a few were willing to 
take them by the hand and urge them to abandon 
an infamous life. It would not be so if the good < 
and virtuous were to unite in a movement that J 
would have this noble end for its object The 
chief cause that led to prostitution was to be 
found in the heartlessness of men who employ 
sewing-women at wages insufficient to support 
them. - 

A boy at St Louis, barely seventeen years old, 
without anything like a constitution to stand

involves, has been beaten’ to death in the ring. 

The Universalis ts are espousing the cause of 
Woman s Rights and Wrongs‘with great appa- 
rent good wilL One season may be that they 
have already a number of talented and excellent 
women enrolled in their ministry, who are prac- 
tically demonstrating the question of their fit- 
ness to hold any place assigned to moral and 
intelligent beings. Among their public journals 
too arc several that are demanding for woman 
all the rights, civil, political, educational and 
industrial, accorded to male citizens. The 
Ambassador of last week had an able article on 
the subject, headed, the “ Woman Question,’ . 
some excerpts of which are given below : 

Nine thousand votes were thrown In Kansas ir favor 
of Female Suffrage. That fact shows that the so-call^l 
Woman Question has become a nroblem which must be 
intelligent peoplem.ycon • 
Unn. to disbelieve In It ; bnt they cannot longer afford 
to aneer at It. They mnat meet the question with argn- 

g ' trid 01 “ accustomed re- 
sort to ridicule. * * * * * 

Every resident citizen not convicted of crime, of suitable 
age, and intellectually qualified, has a right to the ballot 
and is under a moral obligation to use it for the greatest 
good of the community. We judge this is what pebple 
-T™’ when commit themselves to the doc- 
trine that government should rest on the consent of the 

™* T 10 “ rc Pnblican 

8uch a formula excludes extreme youth, the maniac, 
the obviously weak brain, the criminal, the non-resident 
and the grossly ignorant But it does not recognize a 
disqualification in color, race or sex. We presume that 
about all of our readers will approve of the formula as 
we have modified it. A large proportion of them doubt- 
less desire us to argue against Female Suffrage. Well 

° f formuU * they would show 

us how to frame the argument ! In solemn truth we do 

w 18 timber f ° r roch “ "tnwient is com- 

ing from ; we do not see where are the tools or the mec- 
hanism that can frame the timber. 

'lhe fret is just here. If women really want the ballot, 
they can have it by making the demand ! The majority 
of men in Kansas who voted against Female Suffrgae, 
did so to escape the Caudle ridicule at home ! Canvass 
W6W J?' “ d four women °nt of five will scoff at the 
proposition. In fear of their wives, the men don’t dare 
vote for Female Suffrage ! 

h * ve been 80 lon «ta poUtical subor- 
dination that they don’t know the reality of their politi- 
cal degradation. Women are habituated to political 
serfdom : tod here, as elsewhere, habit is second nature 
Conscious of the fact that in what little we have said* 
favorable to Female Suffrage we have incurred the 
wrath of ndt a lew of our women readers, we beg of them 
to consider the point here urged ! There is a good deal 
init Is it inslicnl, or is it habit that makes yon revolt at 
the thought of going to the polls ? If it is instinct, that 
settles the question against Female Suffrage, if nature is 
against it, to argue lor it is beating a rook with a mallet of 
fork. If it is only habit that revolts, thehabitis a bad one ; 
and like all other habits will in timeyieldto its contrary. 
Don’t settle the question in passionate haste whether in- 
stinct or habit furnishes the objection. Think out the 
problem. ****** 

As to the objection that the caucus and the polls will 
degrade woman, make her as coarse as her brother or 
husband, we cannot see much force in it. It does not 
degrade women to stand behind the counter and sell 
sheeting and tape to men ; no, not hall as much as it does 
to sell the same to their own sex ! It elevates woman to 
sing in the “ village choir”— with reason it makes the 
“ vm *« e blacksmith ” proud to see his daughter in that 
public position. Many think it degrades women to stand 
upon the stage ; bnt t£ey who so think aver that the 
custom likewise degntfes man. But they who believe 
the drama legitimate never see ' an impropriety in 
woman on the stage, simp’y because she is woman. 

The man who will be coarse and rude in the presenoe of 
woman anywhere, is a brutal specimen of the sex. The 
overwhelming, and hence controlling majority of men 
voters, will respect woman— will be civil in her presence. 

Ii women want the ballot, and conscientiously use it, we 
have no fear that the prerogative will demoralize them. 
Women went through the soldiers’ camp, and came away 
very much nearer the angels. 

We repeat, the question is, Woman, do you want ths 



ballot? If you do, say so. On fills point you will find 
the men very obedient.

Kanbab Stele Moves. — The Independent thinks 
the late straggle for Female Suffrage in Kansas, 
though accounted a defeat, is not without its 
fruits, because the House of Keppasentatives 
has just chosen Miss Emma Hunt enrolling 
clerk ; and the Senate has a}so chosen Miss 
Holman for its assistant enrolling clerk. This 
shows the drift of public sentiment, and that 
the time for admitting women to the ballot-box

be appreciated in Kansas to a most gratifying 
extent. Nearly every mail brings ns both sub-

Aspiring. — The Church of the Holy Trinity, 
in Brooklyn, has been topping out its steeple 
anew, as indicative doubtless of ‘‘High 
Church” tendencies. The rector, in a subsequent 
sermon, is reported to have said that the “ ar- 
chitect who designed a new spire performed a 
greater service for mankind than the man who 
invented a cotton-gin or a sewing machine. ” Very 
appropriately that rector bears the name of Hr. 
Littlejohn. • 

Lucy Stone. — The Boston correspondent of 
the Anti-Slavery Standard is glad to learn that 
Mrs. Lacy Stone is about to enter upon a vig- 
orous campaign in Massachusetts to secure, if 
possible, from the Legislature now in session, 
an initial step for an amendment of the State 
Constitution, to extend the ballot to women up- 
on equalterms with men ; and especially to gain 
at once for women a position upon boards of 
education. Mrs. Stone will, he expects, have 
the co-operation of Mrs. Caroline M. Severance, 
Mr. Stephen S. Foster, and others interested in 
the work. 

The Federal Capital. — An eminent Amer- 
ican woman once wrote that the virtue of every 
woman in Washington was jeopardized by resi- 
dence there. She wrote even much worse than 
that ; and were we a member of the church, as 
she was and is, and as widely known, it might 
be safe to quote her farther. Parson Brownlow 
said, . when he first went there, he found the 
nearer he approached to the city the more he 
felt inclined to be stealing something. ' Senator 
Wilson last year bore public testimony in Bos- 

ton to the fearful prevalence of drunkenness 
among men. in office there, and if „ telegrams and 
newspaper correspondents are reliable, Gen. 
Grant, the prospective Republican Presidential 
candidate, is a victim ; and last week Robert 
Johnson, son and private secretary of Andrew 
Johnson, was committed to a lunatic a sjU fi m for 
treatment as an inebriate. >

NO. Y. 

To oar Servants at Washington— From 
the People at Home. 


The large unemployed balance which Mr. 
McCulloch keeps idle in the Assistant Treas- 
ury and the National banks, is an unnecessary 
loss to the Nation. Last week the amount in 
the New York Assistant Treasury was $111,000,- 
000, and in the National banks about $30,000;-*, 
000 making a total of $140,000,000 
no interest. If $50,000,000 were in’ 

the purchase of 7-30’s the -gain would be over 
$3,000,000 per annum, an item worth saving to 
the tax-ridden people. ;\ ^ 


The news from Washington 
contemplates no action this session e 
policy floe- our finances and revenue 
meets wilii general condemnation. Thel 
report of Mr. Wells famishes all the information ^ 
required for the Committees to report a bill for 
an intelligent revenue system. If there iS not 
time foe that, sorely Congress can sweep aWay 
the Cottoh tax, and lower that on Whiskey, so 
as to put a stop to the frauds of the Whiskey 
ring, end at the same time increase the receipts 
of Government 


Congress has done well in passing this bill, 
bat the people will not be satisfied with4his. 
They want more greenbacks. They want a sys- 
tem e&finance which shall make the bonds of 
the United States convertible into greenbacks 
at par whenever the holder may so elect and 
again the greenbacks re-exchahgable tor bonds. 
If the people can use the money profitably they 
ought to have it direct from Government in ex- 
change for its bonds, and without the interven- 
tion of bonks or bankers. The more plentiful 
greenbacks, the more business is conducted, on 
the cash principle. When greenbacks were 
plentiful people bought for cash, but now they 
are scarce, they ran accounts and buy on time. 
As greenbacks decrease, so business notes and 
long time credits increase. Before .the re- 
bellion the purchases of the Nation were made 
by the ' use of $300,000,000 of gold and silver 
dollars, $212,000,000 of state bank notes, $500, 
000,000 of bank discounts, and $1,500,000,000 
of bills of exchange and business notes, 
making the total of $2,500,000,000 of pur- 
chasing dollars , which the business of the coun- 
try required to move its property from hand to 


The practical operation of increasing the 
amount of greenbacks in circulation is to in- 
crease the purchases for cash and to decrease 
those on time. This has been demonstrated^ 
the greenback-contraction- policy of Mr. McCul- 
loch, which has driven the country from the 
cash system which existed when greenbacks 
were plentiful, into the old credit system which 
was general before the rebellion. It is a fallacy 
to suppose that greenbacks will be forced into 
circulation during a time of peace beyond what 
the people need. If Congress were to authorize 
the issue of $200,000,000 more greenbacks, it 
does not follow that that amount would be used. 
Government will not givq the greenbacks with- 
out an equivalent, and that equivalent its own 
boQds. What difference then in regard to prices 
can it make, whether the holder of the bond 
gets for them greenbacks or government credit 
direct from government, or bank credits in- 
scribed on their books and called discounts or 
loans T The holder of a government bond can 
afwtys obtain a bank credit or Joan in exchange 
for Ids government bond, therefore a law which 
shall give him the right to demand greenbacks 
qr government Credit in exchange for its bonds 
has no more power to irfiate the currency and 
prices of the country than the bank credits or dis- 
counts which he can obtain now. It simply places 
the holder* ol_govemment bonds on a stable 
where they know precisely the amount 
loan and the cost thereof to be obtained 

pa their governmeUtbondB. It releases the 



people from the caprice and exactions of banks 
and money lenders, and fenders it impossible 
for panics or speculations to make the money 
markets tight. When money or greenbacks are 
in excess they will be converted into the bonds 
bearing a low rate of interest, say 3.65 per oent 
or any other rate Congress may fix, and when 
greenbacks are wanted by business operations 
then the bonds will be converted into them. 
The system of bonds exchangeable for green- 
backs and greenbacks again re-exchangeable for 
the bonds, would in practice simply expand and 
contract the currenoy precisely in accordance 
with the wants of trade. It could not inflate 
more than bank discounts. It would prove to 
be a wholesome check on wild speculations and 
would assuredly facilitate the movement towards 
the resumption of specie payments, besides 
showing plainly the amount of money really 
needed to conduct business on the sound basis 
of cash and short credits. 

Talk among the Brokers in Wall Street. 

The talk is that the bears are getting desperate; 

Erie goes down a little, but the rest of the market don't; 
that cheap money, increasing railroad earnings, a spec- 
ulative public and influential cliques are bound to make 
prioes go up. The talk is that 

and other " stool pigeons” to go round showing his calls 
on Erie at 75; that this was done to humbug the street 
-Into the notion that Uncle Daniel did not -think that 
" this ’ere Eirie would ever get to 75 again;” that Drew’s 
stool pigeons rather overdid it and Drew too; that Drew 
did not sell any calls in reality at 75, and that he refused 
to do so when asked. The talk ts that Drew was at the 
Filth Avenue Hotel on Thursday night 


to 110, and that George Francis Train knew what he was 
about when he told the open Board so in his speech be- 
fore he sailed to Europe. The talk is that the Vander- 
bilt party are getting a short interest in Now York 
Central, and that it is a purchase now as well aa Hudson 
Biver, Harlem, and Toledo. The talk is th t there is a 

that it will soon be moved upwards, as the Baltimoreans 
have bought a good deal of stock within the last fon- 
oight. The talk is that the Quicksilver Company will 
earn enough this Summer to psy off its 

and that it will pay a dividend next year. The talk is 
that some of the coal stooks will be moved soon. The 
talk is that “ The Revolution's ” notice of 

has stopped the dealings in them ; that the street has 
found out that William S. Williams has $800,000 of them 
placed in his hand at 40 to sell ; that the Fourth National 
Bank has a loan on a large amount of them which they 
want returned, and that the market takes tham very 
slowly ; that the broker’s firm employed to bull them is 
likely to make more money thoL anybody else ; that 
for the whole of them, and will stiok the publio with his 
$800,000 of the Tennessee's at some prioe or another ; 
that he is rather afraid of Parscn Bro widow’s manoeuvres 
and don’t believe in holding on too long to a bad egg 
The talk is that 


Toledo and Wabash. The talk Is why does Mr. McCulloch 
keep so much money lying idle in the Assistant Treasury 
and the National banks ? The talk is what is going to 
be done with all the money accumulating in New York 
this Spring? The talk is that if 

on the market at 5 to 0 per oent, how high will it drive 
up the prioe of governments ; that the bonds pay over 
6 per cent, interest in currency at present quotations ? 
The talk is that every body wants to buy 

cutlet and cold at that, was the nearest he could ever 
come to a golden call; and that that golden calf bnai- 
ness was a big thing and he means to make Erie a big 
thing too.” The talk is that Drew says that Seligman 
managed Erie all right in the London market and 
he always told Billy Msrston so, but Billy would have 
his own way, and told Drew that Aaron and the golden 
calf were not a circumstance to Billy Marston, Prairie 
dn Chien and greenback?, and that he would show him 
a ‘ 'greenback calf” that would beat Aaron hollow ; that 
Drew says he Ubver saw that ’ere 

and guesses it stuck at the Bull’s Head near Forty- 
fourth street. The talk is that the Mining Board has 
been fizzling out because 

have been dabbling in Erie and New York Central, and 
that they have not made much money in railways; that 
De Comean is going to stick to mining stocks after this 
and let railways alone. The talk is that the Mining 
Board will have to do something pretty soon if they want 
to keep the Board alive; that the owners of good mining 
stocEs don’t like to see their price run dbwn the moment 
they are placed on the Board, and that the only fellow 
with any pluck there is De Comeau, who sells everything 
and never buys anything, and that although that may 
suit Do Comeau and his friend PhiL Bruns, it don’t suit 
anybody else. Thfetalk is, that the 


with the open Board is going to rip things up; that the 
public will not be counted out, and kept behind a fence 
like cattle in the long room or any other room, and, that 
if the two Boards try it they will make a mistake The 
talk is, that . 

m’lean agreed to take $5,000 
for his lease of the Long Room and, that when asked to 
sign the papers he backed out and declined ; that McLean 
has made a mistake and, that the Room in New Street 
will be a success if the public are allowed to be as free as 
they were in the Long Room. The talk is, that a 


that he was disgusted; that it did not go down to 70, and 
that he is getting nervous over the firmness of the 
market; that 

are heavily short in Western Union and the general 
market, sad that they expected to make a panic and 
general decline by the break in Erie. The talk is that 


are trying to make up a pool in Ohio and Mississippi, 
and that if they do, it will be a case of diamo nd cut 
diamond with bets even on where the profits go; that 
the two M.'s are sure to be all right and their friends, 
perhaps; that they mean to manage the pool on the 
" milking process” by the 

that Marston practised in Erie and North West Com- 
mon. The talk is when are? L. T. Hoyt, Cutting and the 
ether owners oftjgdmberland coal going to make their 
move in thatrstock? The talk is that 

either one way or the other, some say up and others 
down; that the company will pass its next dividend and 
make statements which will knock the price down to 76, 
and others say that there is a strong bull party in it 
that will frighten the shorts into covering by running 
the price up to 150; that the 

than ever, and that the.price would never hate gone be- 
low 140 to 150 if Brown Brothers had had everything 
their own way. The talk is why did Brown Brothers 
put theis rates of Exchange up to 110 on Thursday and 
Friday when their bills could be bought from «^ nid 
hands at 109% for cash ? Was it to settle credits at high 
rates? Or was it to increase their cash sales with dealers ? 
-The talk is what are all these bills drawn against? The 
talk is that 

with Leavitt and Coy and the Per u v ian bonds ia a sharp 
transaction, and more developments are expected. The 
talk ia that Tracey wfll cany his point with the 



; that the stock is going up 

now that the price has advanced to 100, and that Fisk and 
Hatch wfll advance them to 105 very soon. The talk is 


of, the Union Pacific Railroad Company recommended 
them to advance their bonds 5 per cent. The is that 
some foreign bankers are forming a 

POOL* TO BUY THE 5-20*8 OF 1862 
in this market,, and that when they control them here, 
they wfll work the foreign markets and the price of gold 
to suit. The talk is that the gold operators finding 
motions in Congress rather Blow hive got hold of the 
World's correspondent at Washington ; that the World's 
letter from Washin^lbn about “ the 

and a declaration of war against Great Britain must in- 
evitably ensue unless U was accepted, was a canard a 
little too strong for even gold operations, and the 
World knew this and was careful to sign R J. B. 8. ; that 
J. B. 8. means 

that Jennie Buffalo is a sprightly and captivating young 
lady blessed with little foe t, lively imagination and much 
crinoline ; that does the sensation in Washington and 
elsewhere ; that the gold market ia getting beyond the 
influence of sensational letters and telegrams from 
Washington, and that something must be done to start 
the prioe either up or down. The talk is that the Ger- 
man bankers and everybody else are long of gold and 
that a short interest is wanted to make the market healthy. 
The talk is that Daniel Drew ia going to give $50,000 to 
the new . 

in honor of Aaron^and. the golden calf ; that Unde Daniel, 
says be don’t think as how he'll change his rettgkm, but 
if he does he will go in ion. v \ 


that that 'ere golden calf

golden calf too ; that although Bflly-Wraa smart, 


with the new California Express Company called the 
Pacific Express Company and, that some of the managers 
of the old companies having sold out their stock, are 
going in for s mew opposition company. The talk is 
that Bookstaver & Thayer, and Pules ton k Raymond 
have been sticking the public with these people’s stocks 
and promising their ''customers dividends which they 
know are never going to be realized; that the palmy 
days of the Express Companies’ business have passed 
away, and that it is impossible to show any profit on 
the large watered stooks of Qxe old companies.

about $14,000,000 on Friday last, chiefly on account of 
the purchase of 7-?0 notes by Mr. Van Dyck, Assistant

caused by the Treasury Department movements. Hie

Dr. B. von Kuczkowskl Dr. Jas. H. North, 

The Hydropathic Institute, No. 44 Bond Street, in 
ihis City, has been established under the auspices of 
some of our well-known and highly esteemed citizens, 
who have subscribed iunds for opening and carrying it 
on. Many of these gentlemen, and their families have 
derived much benefit from the use of the Water-Cure, 
jmd feel that it is indispensable for the comfort and 
health ot themselves and families to have an Institute in 
fhia city, where the hydropathic treatment may be ad* 
ministered with all the proper conveniences of baths 
and other appliances, under the direction of skillful and 
experienced physicians. The Institute, 44 Bond Street* 
has been fitted up with every convenience necessary to 
the full administration of the water-cure; a whole floor 
separate and distinct is allotted to ladles, with expe- 
rienced female attendants. . This Institute is placed un- 
der the charge of Dr. von Kdozkowbki and Dr. Jas. 
H. North. 

Dr. Kuczkowsxi was a pupil of Prikssnitz, and after- 
wards studied the science and practice of Hydropathy in 
Ihe Institute of Dr. Franoke. Francke is regarded as 
the highest authority on the theory and practioe of the 
water-cure, and has done more than any other writer 
towards establishing it on a scientific basis; his system 
differs from that of Priessnitz vitally in the treatment of 
delicate and nervous patients, for whom he prescribes 
higher temperatures of water, and for all patients that 
they shall be kept warm and comfortable in the bath* 
rooms, and at all times while under treatment. Dr. 
Kuczkowski had his own Institute in Turkey, near Con- 
stantinople, for seven years, and brought with him to 
this country letters of recommendation from Minister 
Bismarck and other distinguished persons. Dr. North 
holds his Diploma from the Pennsylvania Medical Col- 
lege of Philadelphia, as a physician of the Old School, 
but from conviction and experience has adopted the 
Hydropathic system as the natural and true cure for all 
diseases. Dr. North was for many years physician in 
the Institute at Clifton Springs and in other places. 

The undersigned have much pleasure in recommen- 
ding both these gentlemen, Drs. von Kuczkowskl b 
North, as physicians, possessing every requisite to com- 
mand the confidenSe of our fellow citizens and their 
famili es. Desirous of improving the health and adding 
to the happiness of our fellow citizens, we recommend to 
them the study of Francke's Book on "A New Theory of 
Disease applied to Hydropathy,” published by Dr. 
Kuczkowskl, 44 Bond St., as a work which ought to be 
in the hands of every person.

To the Fbiends of the N. Y. Express : 

We solicit from our friends, personal and political, a 
continued interest in the Expre ss, and its respective 
publications — Daily, Semi-Weekly and Weekly. It is 
nearly thirty-one years since the Daily Express com- 
menced in this city with its present proprietors, and in 
all that time it has been earnestly devoted to the Union 
and Equality of the States, the rights of the people, a 
Constitutional Government, the maintainance of Law 
and Order, the Diffusion of Knowledge, and to whatever 
would secure the greatest good of the greatest number 
of people. Our Platform is the same to day on all these 
points of National interest as in 1836, and through all 
Administrations, from that time to the present. Nor is 
it likely that time will change it while we live and the 
Government endures, inasmuch as we believe in what is 
tried and good, rather than in what is vascillating and 

To that portion of the people, therefore, who believe 
in a stable government, good men, good laws and equal 
and exact justice, we shall continue to appeal ior that 
measure of public favor which is due to the principles 
"we avow. 

The year 1868 will be the most important in the his- 
tory of the Government. It will test the right of the 
white race to rule the country, and whether the Ameri- 
can people have the power to resist .the purposes of a 
Jacobin and lawless Congress to give the negro supreme 
control over nearly one-third of the States millions 
of people. This issue is to be decided at the Presiden- 
tial election in 1868, and we invoke the aid of all who be- 
lieve in the Government of the Fathers and in the su- 
premacy of the white race. 

The Express we shall aim to make more and more, in 
all its departments, a thorough National and Local News- 
paper— a Home Journal for the Family — a Political 
Newspaper for the Politician— a Financial and Business 
Journal for the Banker and man of business. For 
rest, in the luture, as in the past, the Express must 
speak for itself. 

The Evening Express having the largest circulation of 
any established evening paper in the State or City, is 
especially worthy of the attention of all classes of adver- 
tisers in their respective departments of trade.

The remaining ten miles will be finished as soon as 
the weather permits the road-bed to be sufficiently 
packed to receive the rails. The work continues to be 
pushed forward in the rock cuttings on the western 
slope with unabated energy, and a much larger force 
will be employed during the current year than ever 
before. The prospect that the whole 


The means provided for Cb construction of this Grea 
National Work are ample. The United States grants its 
Six Per Cent. Bonds at the rate of from $16,000 to $48,000 
per mile, for which it takes a second lien as a security, and 
receives payment to a large if not to the full extent of its 
claim in services. These Bonds are issued as each twenty 
mile section is finished, and after it has been examined by 
United States Commissioners and pronounced to be in all 
respects a first-class road, thoroughly supplied with depots, 
repair-shopB, stations, and all the necessary rolling stock 
and other equipments. 

The United States also makes a donation of 12,800 acres 
of land to the mile, which will be a source of large revenue 
to the Company. Much of this land in the Platte Valley 
is among the most fertile in the world, and other large 
portions are covered with heavy pine forests and abound 
in coal of the best quality. 

The Company is also authorized to issue its own First 
Mortgage Bonds to an amount equal to the issue of the 
Government and no more. Hon. E. D. Morgan and Hon. 
Oakes Ames are Trustees for the Bondholders, and de- 
liver the Bonds to the Company only as the work pro- 
gresses, so that they always represent an actual and pro- 
ductive value. 

The authorized capital of the Company is $100,000,000, 
of which over $6,000,000 have been paid on the work al- 
ready done. 


At present, the profits of the Company are derived only 
from its local traffic, but this is already much more thAw 
sufficient to pay the interest on all the Bonds the Company 
can issue, if not another mile were built It is not 
doubted that when the road is completed the through 
traffic of the only line connecting the Atlantic and Pacific 
States will be large beyond precedent, and, as there will 
be no competition, it can always be done at profitable 

It will be noticed that the Union Pacific Railroad is, in 
fact, a Government work, built under the supervision of 
Government officers, and to a large extent with Govern- 
irent money, and that its b onds are issued under Govern- 
ment direction. It is believed that no similar security is 
so carefully guarded, and certainly no other is based upon 
a larger or more valuable property. As the Company’s 


are offered for the present at 90 CENTS ON THE DOL- 
LAR^ they are the cheapest security in the market, being 
more than 16 per cent lower than U. S. Stock. They pay 


or over NINE PER CENT, upon the investment, and have 
thirty years to ran before maturity. Subscriptions win be

The Rocky Mountain excursion parties of statesmen 
and capitalists (two thousand miles westward without 
break of gauge) pronounce the Pacific Railroad a great 
fact ; the Credit Mobilier (its contractors), a national 
reality ; the Credit Fonder (owning cities along the line), 
an American institution. 

The grandest national work of any age, is the Union 
Pacific Railroad. Under its present Napoleonic leader- 
ship, in 1810 the road will be finished to San Francisco. 
Five Hundred and thirty miles are already running west 
of Omaha to the base of the mountains, north of Denver. 
The Iowa Railroad (Chicago and Northwestern) is now 
open to the Missouri River opposite Omaha ; where the 
temporary bridge that has bejn constructed joins you 
with the Pacific. Here is the time-table : 

New York to Chicago (dra * ing-room car all 

the way, without change) _ 88 hours. 

Chicago to Omaha, without change (Pull- 
man’s sleeping palaces) 24 •*

Mountains, (Union Pacific Railroad) 28 **

Say four days from New York to the Rocky Mountains. 
Two thousand two hundred miles without a change of 
gauge or car, or the removal of your carpet bag and 
shawl from your state-room. 

The Credit Fonder of America owns the capitol addi- 
tion to Columbus,— probably the future capitol of Ne- 
braska. What is the Credit Fonder? Ask the first mil- 
lionaire you meet, and the chances are he will tell you 
that he was one of the one hundred original thousand 
dollar subscribers. No other such special copartnership 
of wealthy men exists on this continent- (A list of these 
distinguished names can be seen at the Company’s 

Where is Columbus? Ask the two hundred Union 
Pacific Railroad excursionists who encamped there on 

the Credit Fonder grounds. Is it not the geographical 
centre of this nation ? Ninety-six miles due weBt from 
Omaha, the new Chicago ; ninety-six miles from the 
Kansas border on the south ; ninety-six miles from the 
Dacotah line on the north, Columbus is situated on the 
upper bottom, at the junction of the Platte and the Loup 
Fork, and is surrounded by the finest agricultural lands in 
the world. 

The Credit Fonder lands extend from the railway 
station across the railway, anfi enclose the Loup Fork 
Bridge ; the county road to the Pawnee settlement run- 
ning directly through the domain. As the railway sys- 
tem expands, Columbus will naturally be the railway 
centre of the Sioux City, Nebraska City and Nemaha Val- 
ley Railroads. 

The Union Pacific Railroad Company were not slow to 
see that Columbus was the natural point for an im- 
portant station. The Credit Mobilier owns lands near 
the city, and some leading generals and statesmen are 
also property owners round about Would you make 
money easy ? Find, then, the site of a city and buy the 
farm it is to be built on. How many regret the non- 
purchase of that lot in New York ; that block in Buffalo ; 
that farm in Chicago ; that quarter section in Omaha. 
Onoe these city properties could have been bought for a 
song. Astor and Girard made, their fortunee-in this 
way. The Credit Fonder, by owning the prindpal 
towns along the Pacific line to California, enriches its 
shareholder#, while distributing its profits by selling 
alternate lots at a nominal price to the public. 

The Credit Fonder owns 688 acres at Columbus, di- 
vided into 80 ft. streets and 20ft. alleys. 

These important reservations are made : Two ten-acre 
parks ; one t r n-acre square, for the university of Nebras- 
ka ; one five-acre triangle, for an agricultural college ; 
one five-acre quadrangle, for a public school ; one acre 
each donated to the several churches, Episcopal, Catho- 
lic, Presbyterian, Lutheran, Methodist, Congregational 
and Baptist, and ten acres to the State tor the new Capitol 

Deducting these national, educational and religious 
donations, the Credit Fonder has oVer 3,000 lots (44x115) 
remaining, 1,600 of which they offer for sale, reserving 
the alternate lots for improvements. 


First.— It is worth fifty dollars to a young man to be 
associated with such a powerful Company. 

Second.— By buying in Columbus, you purchase the 
preference right to be interested in the next town 
mapped out by the Credit Fonder^ and, as we dig 
through the mountains, that town may be a gold mine. 

Third. — Owning 6,000 feet oi land 1,700 miles off by 
rail, extends one’s geographical knowledge, and suggests 
that Massachusetts, South Carolina and Virginia do not 
compose the entire American Republic. 

When this ocean bottom— this gigantic plateau of the 
antediluvian sea— this relic of the great inland lake often 
thousand years ago, between Omaha and Columbus, be- 
comes peopled, - with corn-fields and villages, a lot at 
Columbus may be a handy thing to have about the 

•The object of the Credit Fonder in selling alternate 
lots at such a low figure, is to open up the boundless 
resources along the line of the Union Pacific Railroad to 
the young men of the East Lauded proprietsrship 
gives a man self-reliance, and may stimulate the em- 
employee to become employer. Fifty dollars invested 
ten years ago in Chicago or Omaha, produces many 
thousand now. 

As this allotment of 1,600 shares is distributed through 
New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington, 
Cincinnati, Chicago and 8t Louis, early application 
should be made by remitting a check to the Company’s 
bankers, Messrs. John J. Cisco & Son, 33 Wall street, 
when you will receive a deed for the property. 

To save the lot-owner the trouble of writing, the Credit 
Fonder pays all taxes for two years. 

Do not forget that every mile of road built westward, 
adds to the value of property in Omaha and Columbus. 
Cheyenne, at the foot of the mountains, four hundred 
miles west of Columbus, is but six months old, and has 
three thousand people. Lots there selling for three thou- 
sand dollars. 

Most of the Directors of the Union Pacific Railroad, 
and the Directors and Subscribers of the Credit Mobilier, 
are the Shareholders of the Credit Fonder of America.

The Movement-Cure is eminently the out-growth oi 
the present advanced state of Chemistry, Physiology, and 
co-related sciences ; and as practiced at this Institute, is 
the product of twenty years of diligent and progressive 
toil, in this special field. 

The effects of the Movement-Cure are gradual and per- 
manent, unlike those of drugs of stimulants. 

The ODesiations are agreeable, and no degree of weak- 
ness or helplessness is a bar to their application.

For a wife or Family a whole LIFE POLICY is the best 
hing possible. 

For a Daughter or Son an ENDOWRY POLICY is the 
most desirable, as it is payable at marriage or other speci- 
fied time. 

For one’s own self the best New Year treat is a LIFE 
RETURN ENDOWMENT POLICY, which is issued only 
by this Company; it gives the person a certain sum if he 
lives to a specified time, or to his heirs if he decease be- 
fore, with the return of the Endowment Premiums with 
interest. It therefore truly combines all the advantages 
of Insurance and a Savings Bank, which has not before 
been done.
